Demand for high-tech workers still rising
Demand for high-tech workers rose for the tenth consecutive month in February 2010. According to the Manpower Information Technologies (MIT) index, demand for high-tech workers was 5.4% higher in February than in January, and was 31% higher compared with February 2009.
MIT CEO Erez Banovich said, "If the increase in demand for high-tech workers continues at the same pace, we expect that demand for high-tech workers in May will return to the level of October 2008. Moreover, since we're talking about a clear growth trend in demand, I believe that demand will exceed the record reached in October 2008."
MIT says that demand in February was especially high for software development project managers and for experienced Java programmers, including veterans of IDF technology units. Demand was also high for cellular operating systems developers and for mobile Internet quality assurance developers, due to rising global demand.
Salaries offered to job candidates rose by 5-7% in February.
