IT Consulting News: IT Employment Continues to Rise

The National Association of Computer Consultant Businesses (NACCB) conducted a study that showed that the employment of IT consulting professionals continued an upward trend in June in spite of the considerably low overall unemployment rate. For the past 12 months, IT workers have enjoyed an increase of 152,000 and last month, the number of workers grew 2,400 more than in May, which brings the annual increase to 4.4%.

CEO of NACCB, Mark Roberts states that this increase reflects a high demand for IT consulting professionals, including those that work within the IT services field. Professionals in every field are seeking IT workers in order to help them stay competitive in their fields. Many are turning to IT services firms and IT consulting firms to find support for their own staff or to help them complete entire projects.

NACCB is the national trade organization for IT staffing and solutions firms and publishes the IT employment index, which is revised monthly.
