IT jobs in the state nearly held steady in February

Posted by David Ranii on March 17, 2014 

The market for information technology jobs across North Carolina dipped a scant one-tenth of a percent in February, according to the latest report from the N.C. Technology Association.

That negligible decline from January to February marked an improvement over the 7.1 percent decline that took place from December to January.

Still, the 2,980 IT job openings posted in the state last month was a two-year low and well shy of the 3,720 posted in February 2013 and the 4,930 posted in February 2012.

“Demand for IT professionals has become softer over the past eight months since it peaked in June of last year,” the report states.

Nationwide, IT job postings rose a negligible one-tenth of a percent in February.

The NCTA report is prepared by SkillPROOF, which focuses on job market data and research.
