ITEmployment Report

In the aftermath of a dismal labor report, with the addition of only 96,000 jobs in August for all industries and an unemployment rate which fell to 8.1% due to 368,000 people abandoning the workforce, IT professionals encounter a mixed labor market as the IT sector continues to demonstrate a pattern of modest growth.

The latest report from TechServe Alliance, a collaboration of IT services firms, clients,consultants, and suppliers, stated that IT employment reached another all-time high in August, with the addition of 5,100 jobs (up 0.1% from the previous month) to reach a level of 4,198,800."While the month-over-month rate of growth is not quite as robust as it was earlier in the year, overall IT employment remains strong," maintained CEO of TechServe Alliance, Mark Roberts. "We continue to see strong demand as well as a shortage of talent in certain key IT skill sets."

As the competition for talent intensifies, 56% of IT employers worry that they may lose their top performers, a 5% increase from the previous year. 35% lost top workers in Q2, up from 30% in 2011 and 20% in Q1.Furthermore, 43% of IT employers report they currently have positions available for which they are unable to find qualified candidates.
