The latest CompTIA data analysis shows continued mixed signals for tech-related jobs with companies adding 12,900 technical and non-technical workers in September.
The latest data from the monthly U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Employment Situation report confirms a recovery that remains uneven and unpredictable. The CompTIA data analysis shows a mix of good news in IT sector employment gains and disappointing news in IT occupation job losses.
The tech sector recorded its second consecutive month of employment growth. The IT services and custom software development category led the way in job gains. There was also positive growth in tech manufacturing and the information services category.
Tech companies added about 9,200 new workers in August.
Massive Tech Occupation Job Losses
The industry’s employment growth was countered by an unexpected loss of 324,000 tech occupation jobs. Those span all industry sectors across the economy.
