IT Employment Continues to Drop
In the latest report from the National Association of Computer Consultant Businesses (NACCB), IT employment continued to drop at the end of 2008, but remained ahead of overall employment numbers. No surprise there, but I was a little surprised to see that IT employment was up year over year for 2008. And yesterday on Wall Street the tech sector looked promising with IBM and Apple reporting strong earnings. Microsoft and Google report today, and the latest unemployment and housing reports come out. So more mixed news is probably on the way.
