Dec 11, 2012 (04:12 PM EST)
ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- IT employment was essentially flat in November---ticking up only modestly over October's numbers.
According to TechServe Alliance, a collaboration of IT services firms, clients, consultants and suppliers, the number of IT jobs grew by 200 jobs in November to reach a level of 4,185,600. Except for the modest dip in September, IT employment has grown every month this year and is up 2.66% on a year-over-year basis.
"While IT continues to outperform most other sectors of the economy, it is not immune to the broader macroeconomic trends," said Mark Roberts, the CEO of TechServe.
"With near universal agreement that demand for IT professionals will remain strong for the foreseeable future, I am extremely bullish that IT employment will return to a more robust growth trajectory once the pervasive uncertainty dissipates," added Roberts.
