The number of IT jobs took a small downturn in September after a year of consistent month-over-month growth and hitting an all-time monthly high in August, according to a report released by the TechServe Alliance. The number of IT jobs was 4,183,800 in September, down 6,900 from August. Year over year, IT employment has grown 2.9 percent.
“In a dynamic labor market like there is for IT professionals, month-to-month numbers are volatile,” said Mark Roberts, CEO of TechServe. “I would not read too much into to one month’s small decline. On balance, demand remains strong. If we were to see several months of month-over-month declines, that would be more indicative of a downward trend.”
TechServe Alliance is a collaboration of IT staffing firms, solutions firms, clients, consultants and suppliers.
