IT Employment Finishes Strong in 2011

MarketWatch (01/17/12)

The latest monthly index of information technology (IT) jobs from TechServe Alliance concludes that the economy added those jobs at a robust pace in December, contributing to an already strong year for IT employment. The number of IT jobs increased by more than 0.4%, rising to 4,082,100 jobs in December, according to TechServe, a collaboration of IT services firms, clients, consultants, and suppliers. On an annual basis, IT jobs were up 3.3% in 2011 over 2010.

“As we begin 2012, I am heartened to see accelerating growth in IT employment,” says Mark Roberts, chief executive of TechServe Alliance. “Based upon both the data and anecdotal reports of my member companies, one of our greatest challenges going forward will be a shortage of IT talent in key skill sets.”
