30K IT jobs added in first quarter and 100K IT jobs added in the last 8 months says Janco

The CEO of Janco Associates, Inc., Mr. M. Victor Janulaitis said, “There is great news for IT Professionals. Companies have hired back almost all of the IT Pros who lost jobs as the shut-downs are ending and vaccines are available. Since August of last year, over 100K jobs have been added for IT Professionals. 30,400 of those jobs were added in the first quarter of this year.”

Janulaitis added, “We believe, with the increase in government spending and the desire to rapidly get back to normal operations, the total IT job market will continue to expand rapidly in the second quarter as more businesses open and get back to normal operations.” The CEO followed up with, “We forecast that close to 100K new IT jobs will be added by the end of the 4th quarter of this year. CIOs now are no longer in survival mode. Now they are looking ahead to the post-pandemic operating environment. “
