The number of information technology jobs in the U.S. rose in February following strong growth in January. The TechServe Alliance’s IT employment index reported that IT jobs in the U.S. rose by 0.38 percent in February from January.
Meanwhile, the number of U.S. engineering jobs rose by 0.20 percent in February from the previous month to approximately 2.5 million jobs, according to TechServe Alliance.
“Following impressive numbers in January, I am pleased to see that IT and engineering job growth continued on a strong trajectory in February,” said TechServe Alliance CEO Mark Roberts. “I am very bullish on the future. Absent a geopolitical or macroeconomic shock, we should see strong demand for IT and engineering talent throughout 2014.”
