Connecticut IT Jobs Report November 2010

November 2010 – Demand for IT workers in Connecticut dropped again last month indicating less interest by employers to add additional staff to their payrolls. The number of job opportunities declined 3.1% compared to September wiping out that month’s uptick of the job market. Much of the current stagnation may be blamed on the run up to the mid-term elections which left employers undecided about the direction of the economy and their prospects to hold on to new hires. All industries posted fewer openings except IT Services.

This report is getting stale: This report seems to fit in with national trends.  According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the employment change in the information industry as a whole remained relatively flat in June.  Similarly, the unemployment rate stayed fairly stable, seeing a modest decrease down to 9.5%.  As a state, Connecticut unemployment also remained flat at 8.8% in June. This rate was 8.9% in May.
