High-tech workers more in demand
Demand for new workers in the high-tech sector rose by 2.1% in November, according to placement company MIT's index. This is the sixth rise in the past seven months.
Demand has risen by an average of 1.8% monthly over that period. Nevertheless, demand for high-tech workers was still 12.7% lower in November than in the same month last year.
Demand rose in November across all professional groups, apart from managers, for whom demand fell by 14.3%. The highest rise was in demand for hardware engineers, by 11.5%, and after them for network managers and support staff, by 10.6%.
Erez Benovich, CEO of Manpower Information Technology of the Manpower group, said, "There's a positive wind, and the market is translating that into a consistent rise in demand for high-tech workers. We expect that 2010 will be a year in which demand will rise towards the level seen in 2008.",
