Strong IT Jobs Market Is Hiring
It is a good time to find an IT job. While national unemployment exceeds 14 percent, unemployment in the IT sector remains low at just 4.3 percent, indicating that the opportunities for a career in IT are strong.
According to the July CompTIA IT Employment Tracker, more than 250,000 IT jobs in the U.S. were posted in June. IT Support Specialist is among the top 5 positions available with 22,000 job postings, an increase of 4,700 over May. And, the number of remote/work-from-home IT Support Specialist job postings ranked second in June with 1,121 more postings than May. In fact, nearly 1 out of every 4 IT Support Specialist jobs posted were for remote hires.
There are many IT career opportunities for the millions of unemployed, ranging from IT support technicians to IT help desk jobs. Training and certification in CompTIA A+ along with career services from CompTIA Tech Career Academy can help you land one of those IT jobs.
