Last month, IT and engineering jobs increased by just 0.1%. Total IT jobs reached 5,293,000 – a 3.3% increase since last year. Engineering checked in at 2,558,300 with an annual growth of 1.1%. Low unemployment, talent shortages, and uncertainty with immigration policies have contributed to the slowed growth.
Recruiters may find that IT and engineering jobs are harder to come by and more challenging to fill.
