IT jobs hit all-time high, again

August 08 2013

The number of U.S. information technology jobs rose 0.4 percent in July to reach another all-time high of almost 4.5 million, according to TechServe Alliance, a collaboration of IT staffing firms, solutions firms, clients, consultants and suppliers.

IT employment increased by 5.9 percent on a year-over-year basis, adding almost 251,500 IT workers.

IT jobs have increased steadily since November 2011.

“I am pleased to see IT employment remains a bright spot in an overall labor market that is still recovering slowly,” said Mark Roberts, CEO of TechServe Alliance. “With July's strong showing, IT employment has now grown for 23 consecutive months.”

While the economy is still in a modest recovery mode, IT remains a hot spot for avid job seekers. According to a December 2012 survey by Dice, 65% of IT hiring managers plan to add headcount in the next 3-6 months. These opportunities will span a variety of technical disciplines. A Computerworld survey listed the top ten IT skill sets for 2013 including Application Development, Project Management, Technical Support, Security, Business Intel/Analytics, Cloud, Virtualization, Networking, Mobile, and Data Center Services.
