Report: IT Job Market Recovering

According to this report from CIOUpdate, TechServe Alliance, a national trade association representing the IT services industry, believes there is cause for cautious optimism in the IT employment market as recent data indicates new IT jobs are steadily being created.


“In July, the IT sector added 9,700 jobs in the U.S., a 1 percent improvement from the same month last year, to a total of 3,875,000 positions. For the year, TechServe’s report (PDF format) says more than 63,000 IT jobs have been created so far this year.

“‘Despite a generally anemic employment environment, IT employment continues to show strength,” Mark Roberts, TechServe Alliance’s CEO, said in the report. “With July’s growth, IT employment has increased in each of the last seven months.’

“The report jibes with other statistics compiled in the past few months by vendors, IT consultants and employment staffing firms that found companies are starting to hire more IT staffers, particularly for cloud-computing and virtualization projects left on the backburner during the economic meltdown of the past three or four years.”
