While the overall employment market continued to deteriorate, IT employment reached an all-time high in June, according to the National Association of Computer Consultant Businesses (NACCB), which tracks monthly IT employment.

The association reported IT employment reached 3,907,800 in June, a record high. While the June gain was modest (1,700), May's figure was revised upward reflecting a very strong gain of nearly 43,000 IT jobs -- an impressive monthly increase of over one percent. So far this year, IT has grown by almost 90,000 jobs compared to the overall employment market that has lost 438,000 jobs. "In light of deteriorating conditions in the general employment market, I am heartened by the continued resilience of IT employment," commented Mark Roberts, CEO of NACCB.

Technical note: NACCB's IT Employment Index is the first specific measurement of IT employment. This unique measurement of total IT employment is created monthly by studying the ongoing staffing patterns of a dozen IT and computer related occupations in 16 industries and industry sectors employing significant numbers of IT workers including the manufacturing, wholesale and retail trade, financial, information services, business and professional services, and education and health industries. The monthly IT Employment Index is based on U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data, which is subject to monthly revisions, with concomitant revisions to the Index. The IT Employment Index is also subject to annual revisions of BLS data. The IT Index was rebenchmarked in February 2008 with the publication of the BLS January 2008 employment report, reflecting significant revisions of employment data from the past several years.
