IT Employement Rises in November

A monthly index of IT jobs maintained by TechServe Alliance found that there are now 4,068,400 jobs in the IT sector, an increase of 7,100  jobs since October.  The new total jobs figure represents a 2.1 percent increase -- 84,000 jobs -- since November 2010.

Though these figures doesn't seem impressive, they compare favorably with the overall labor market growth of 0.1 percent in the last month and 1.2 percent in the last year.

In a prepared statement , Mark Roberts, TechServe Alliance’s CEO, said he remains “very bullish on the prospects for continued growth in 2012."  He anticipates "IT employment will surpass its all-time high set back in June 2008.”
