Tech manufacturing employment experiencing little growth, however

By , Computerworld |  IT Management, IT jobs

Employment analysts who look at specific IT services categories reported strong growth in services last month.

Foote Partners said 12,500 IT jobs were added last month, mostly in management technical consulting services and computer systems design and related services.

Janco Associates put October's gains at 6,600 jobs. ""The jobs picture for IT Pros is looking better," said Janco CEO Victor Janulaitis in a statement. "Maybe we are coming out of the recession, but it is a slow and arduous process."

David Foote, the CEO of Foote Partners, says companies are hiring. "I'm certain that we will also see strong IT numbers in November's employment report," he said in a statement.
