CompTIA: Tech Jobs Market Powers On
The technology jobs market continued its run of gains, which contributed to the unexpectedly strong #JobsReport for the month, according to analysis by CompTIA.
Tech occupations across all industry sectors increased by an estimated 239,000 positions in July, CompTIA’s analysis of data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reveals. Tech industry level employment experienced a net gain of 12,700 workers, the 20th consecutive month of employment growth. Tech industry employment has increased by 143,700 jobs this year, an increase of 55% year-over-year.
“The tech jobs market has repeatedly outperformed in the face of real and perceived economic weakness,” said Tim Herbert, chief research officer at CompTIA. “The data confirms that for every layoff announcement there are other employers stepping in to take advantage of tech talent hiring opportunities.”
