Demand for high-tech workers rises
Demand for high-tech workers rose by 2.9% in August 2009, for the fourth consecutive month, reports Manpower Israel Ltd.) unit Manpower Information Technologies Ltd. (MIT).
MIT CEO Erez Banovitch said, "August, which is usually the time for vacations, and a weak month for demand for workers, saw an increase in demand this year. However, it is important to note that demand for workers was still 25% lower than in August 2008. There is still a long way to go to return to the demand numbers of the third quarter of 2008. The good news is that the upward trend is continuing."
MIT added that, while demand for high-tech workers in July rose for all categories, except for managers, for whom demand was unchanged, August's demand rise was not uniform: demand was up for programmers (3.9%) and network managers and support staff (3%), but was down for team leaders and project manager (-3.3%), and for hardware engineers (-5.8%).
