CompTIA: Stronger Than Expected Tech Job Growth
Hiring activity for technology workers remains on an upward trajectory, countering reports of layoffs and reaffirming tech’s essential role in powering the nation’s economy, according to analysis by CompTIA.
Technology industry companies added 20,300 net new workers in June, the 19th consecutive month of employment growth, CompTIA’s analysis of the latest #JobsReport from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) shows. Tech sector employment for the first half of 2022 is tracking 59% ahead of the same period last year.
“The stronger than expected job gains reaffirm the critical role of tech across every sector and every business in the economy,” said Tim Herbert, chief research officer at CompTIA. “It also highlights the limitations in projecting company-specific hiring practices to the broader tech workforce.”
