Another uptick in IT hiring for February 2010

IT employment grew by 0.37%, or 14,000 jobs, from January to February, according to a ComputerWorld article referencing research from the TechServe Alliance, an IT services industry group that analyzes U.S. Labor Department unemployment data.

"Posting an increase of over 25,000 IT jobs during the first two months of the year is both heartening and a positive harbinger for the future, said Mark Roberts, CEO of TechServe Alliance, in a statement.  He said the data reflects "renewed optimism" and indicates that businesses are reversing "recession-driven cutbacks."
