ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The number of IT jobs grew 0.07 percent sequentially last month to 4,518,200, according to TechServe Alliance, the national trade association of the IT & Engineering Staffing and Solutions industry. On a year-over-year basis, IT employment has grown by 5.17% since November 2012 adding 222,000 IT workers.
Engineering jobs grew once again in November, up 0.15 percent sequentially last month to 2,474,900. On a year-over-year basis, engineering employment has grown by 1.51% since November 2012 adding 36,800 engineering workers.
"While IT employment has grown for 27 consecutive months with 23 of those months being successive all-time highs, the rate of growth has continued to decelerate over the past year. On the engineering side, there was only modest growth during most of 2013," stated Mark Roberts, CEO of TechServe Alliance. "While consistent employment growth month-over-month is to be applauded at any level, the forces that earlier in the year turbo-charged the growth rate in IT appear to have abated. With the New Year approaching and a federal budget deal on the horizon, I am hopeful we can return to a more robust rate of job growth in 2014," added Roberts.
