IT job growth continues in U.S.
- September 11, 2012
The number of IT jobs in the U.S. continued to grow in August, hitting a monthly all-time high.
“While the month-over-month rate of growth is not quite as robust as it was earlier in the year, overall IT employment remains strong,” stated Mark Roberts, CEO of Alexandria-based TechServe Alliance, a collaboration of IT firms. “We continue to see strong demand as well as a shortage of talent in certain key IT skill sets,”
TechServe said the number of IT jobs rose 5,100 jobs in August to nearly 4.2 million. Since August last year IT employment has grown 3.36 percent.
