IT Job Market 2019
IT Job Market 2019 – in the first 4 months of the year the number of new IT jobs created exceeds 40K. That rate of growth is at a level that is beyond the number of individuals graduating from universities and trade schools.
A steady progression in the number of new IT job created has been consistent for the last two years. We do not see that changing for any time soon.
The areas where there has been the greatest inscrease in demand has been for those applictions that depend on remote users. For example, iOS and Andraoid applications which access big data are where there is a grea shortage of skilled IT Professionals. Add to that, the implications of cryptocurrency applications including blockchain and distributed ledger technology and you will find the disciplines that are the focus of new job creation.
