IT job growth decelerates in September

October 24 2013

The growth rate for information technology jobs continued to slow in September, according to the TechServe Alliance’s IT employment index, released yesterday. The number of IT jobs rose 0.11 percent from the previous month. It rose by 0.15 percent in August and 0.43 percent in July, according to previous index readings.

“While demand for IT professionals remains strong, the rate of IT employment growth has slowed over the last quarter,” said TechServe Alliance CEO Mark Roberts. “The deceleration is no doubt attributable to multiple factors including some increased caution on the part of businesses and uncertainty associated with policy disputes in Washington, D.C.”

TechServe Alliance is a collaboration of IT staffing firms, solutions firms, clients, consultants and suppliers.
