Janco Reports 34,600 New IT Jobs Created in the First Quarter
April 04, 2022 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsPark City – UT – www.e-janco.com – Janco reports that the IT Job Market continues to expand. Over the past year over 11K new positions were added each month. All signs point to that growth continuing. Janco forecast is that over 138K new IT jobs will be created in 2022. The IT job market is now over 3.85 million positions in the U.S.
The CEO of Janco, M. Victor Janulaitis said, "In our analysis of the impact of the pandemic and overall unemployment levels we found that when there is a material shift in the number of full employment states there is a direct relationship between that and both increases and decreases in the number of jobs for IT Professionals. In addition to the most recent events we reviewed, we reviewed the data for the dot com bubble and found the same relationship." He reinforced, "When there is a shift in the number of full employment states with a shift in the number of states that have high unemployment rates, demand for IT professionals as defined by Janco is directly impacted."
The CEO added, "We have adjusted the model which we use to forecast IT Job Market growth to take this into account. This data is used by our clients as they forecast and adapt IT spending patterns in the budgetary and operational management of IT. We currently forecast that over 138K jobs will be added by the end of the calendar year."
The IT Job Market is just over 3.85 million positions within the US. With those positions classified in four major categories: Computer System Design and Related Services (61% - 2.4 million); Telecommunications (19% - 651K); Data Processing, Hosting, and Related Services (10% - 404K); and Other Information Services (10% - 401K). Janco tracks and maintains over 20 years of historical data on the IT Job Market.
The CEO concluded by saying, "Based on our analysis, the IT job market and opportunities for IT professionals will continue to be positive but not as broad in scope as in the last quarter of 2021. CIOs are still posturing to hire more staff and expand technologies to address blockchain processing and security applications based on market conditions. However recent events, increased energy cost, and the specter of high inflation will harm IT job market growth."
In addition, "In our 2022 IT Salary Survey, we have found IT salaries for existing IT staff and middle managers increased by just over 2% while new hires in the last quarter of 2021 were paid 5-6% more than existing staff. In conversation with several CIOs, we learned that increases for new hires in the 9-12% range were not uncommon. It is not uncommon for IT Pros who are highly skilled and experienced (over 10 years) to be offered salaries at $125K and above. Salary disparity is a driver of dissatisfaction and an increase in attrition rate among existing employees."
