Reports from both Dice.com and TechServe Alliance provide ever-promising news to the IT industry. While a survey from Dice Holdings Inc finds that 52% of employers plan on hiring more in the second half of 2010 (not industry specific), a report from Dice news quotes an Intacct survey, finding that 90% of companies related to the software industry plan on hiring more professionals over the next six months.
Similar good news comes from TechServe’s latest report, observing that for the first time in over 12 months there is a positive year-over-year job increase in the IT sector. IT employment is also up 7,300 jobs from last month, a growth that continues to outpace many other industries.
“I am heartened by continued growth in IT employment,” comments Mark Roberts, CEO of TechServe Alliance. “Based on the data and anecdotal reports of our members reporting strong demand for their services, we foresee continued growth in IT employment as we enter the second half of 2010,” says Roberts.
