IT Employment Outperforms With A Strong March

ALEXANDRIA, Va., April 5, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In the face of an otherwise anemic jobs report, IT Employment remained strong in March.  

The number of IT jobs grew 0.34 percent sequentially last month to 4,403,100, according to TechServe Alliance, a collaboration of IT & Engineering Staffing and Solutions firms, clients, consultants and suppliers. With the upward revision in February's numbers from 0.38 to 0.71 percent, IT employment has grown by over 4.96% since March 2012.    

"While I know the overall jobs report disappointed most observers, I am pleased to see that IT continues on a steady growth trajectory," observed Mark Roberts, the CEO of TechServe Alliance. "Based on the data and anecdotal reports I hear from my member companies, demand for IT talent remains very strong with shortages in many skill sets.  We continue to believe the sector will remain a bright spot in the economy throughout 2013," added Roberts.
