Looking for Jobs? Look to IT in 2012 and Beyond

August 2, 2012
IT plays an important role in economic recovery.

This report dispels the notion that the best days for IT jobs have passed with the bursting of the dot-com bubble in 2000 and the practice of off-shoring today. From 2001 to 2011, a decade characterized by recessions and jobless recoveries, over 565,000 new IT jobs were created. IT employment grew more than 95 times faster than employment as a whole, which grew by only 0.2 percent.
