August saw no IT jobs growth in America with overall IT jobs effectively flat, down 0.05 per cent in August compared to the prior month, according to TechServe Alliance, the national trade association of the Technology Staffing and Solutions Industry. On a year-over-year basis, IT employment was up a meager 0.19 per cent from July 2021, adding a net of only 10,500 jobs.

The Engineering sector showed a year-over-year job growth rate of 4.04 per cent, with the addition of 106,100 jobs over the course of the year.

“There is plenty of demand and positions open, but there are just not enough IT professionals around to meet the needs of businesses,” said Mark Roberts, CEO of TechServe Alliance.

“Our members are constantly educating their clients about the necessity of making quick hiring decisions, offering competitive benefits and compensation, and being flexible on where the work is performed wherever possible. Despite the talk of recession and pockets of layoffs, it is still an employee’s market in IT with many candidates receiving multiple competing job offers.”
