The last four months of 2016 saw the biggest year-over-year rise in computer-related job growth since 2010, according to a report from the Institute for Supply Management.
It was also the first time since 2011 that the industry has reported a positive year-on-year growth in job growth, with the exception of 2014, when computer-driven jobs rose at a rate faster than that of the labor force.
Job growth is up over 3% year-to-date, according the report.
And it’s a significant uptick, according a survey by CareerBuilder.com, the largest online job board.
The rise in employment is largely due to the increase in the number of IT-related jobs in the U.S.
The growth in computer related jobs is a clear indication of how strong the IT industry is, said Tom Dickson, senior vice president of research at CareerBuilder, which polled more than 500 job seekers across the country.
The number of computer related positions in the United States has risen more than 200% over the past three years, to 6.3 million in 2015, according.
That’s nearly double the level of jobs in 1986.
The U.K., by comparison, saw its computer-focused job growth drop by about 35% from a year earlier, to 5.6 million.
The number of U.N. peacekeeping personnel has also jumped in recent years, with a total of 1.3m personnel in 2017.
That number, however, is down by more than a third from the previous year, as a result of the recent wave of U/S violence in the Horn of Africa, Dickson said.
“These are just the latest numbers out of the United Nations, but I think they really paint a pretty grim picture of what is going on in Africa and the peacekeeping force in Africa,” he said.
“I think we’re getting closer to the time when it is going to be much tougher for U.NS. peacekeepers to go forward and defend their home countries.”
What’s interesting is that the number that is now in the peacekeepers is actually lower than it was three years ago, when the U/N.
mission was still in operation.
So there’s a real concern for the U.
“The rise of technology-driven industries in the past few years has not been limited to computer and software engineers, Dison said.
The tech-driven sector has created thousands of jobs over the last decade. “
There is a real desire to get into the technology sector, and there is also a growing interest in IT-driven sectors,” he added.
The tech-driven sector has created thousands of jobs over the last decade.
It’s also led to a sharp rise in salaries for tech-focused workers, said David Anderson, senior director of technology research at the University of Southern California.
The average pay for tech workers has risen by roughly $10,000 a year, to $69,000, according from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
That’s a good indicator that the labor market is in good shape, he added, but he pointed out that the real job growth for those workers has been “lousy.”
Anderson estimated that the average worker is now making $80,000 more a year than they were a year ago.
That means the number working in the field of IT has more than doubled over the same time period, from around 1.2 million in 2010 to more than 4.6 billion now.
That trend is likely to continue as more companies focus on hiring IT-enabled workers and take advantage of new technologies, Anderson said.
