IT Employment Remains at Record Level

Employment may be down in general, but hiring in the IT sector has hit an all-time high. This is great news for IT workers with specific in-demand skills, like SAP experience.

According to the National Association of Computer Consultant Businesses (NACCB), IT employment reached a record high of 3,925,600 in September. The broader job market lost 159,000 jobs in September alone, but skilled IT professionals haven’t had much to worry about.

However, what impact will the decline of tech wages, discussed in several recent posts here at The Recruiter, have on workers? It may be easy to find work in IT, but what if you aren’t making nearly as much as you used to? People are having to make difficult choices nowadays, but remember that 2009, and possible greener pastures, are only a few weeks away.

Check out the NACCB’s press release for more information.
