Correction: Tech Unemployment

Filed under: Business Moves,Economy — Tom @ 2:18 pm

It was reported as being 2% on Monday (first item at link).

It’s apparently lower than that:

Wednesday, July 25, 2007 5:52 PM/EST
Tech Unemployment at 1.7%
Technology and engineering unemployment is at 1.7 percent, the lowest level since 2000, and is at less than one percent for petroleum engineers (0.7 percent), architects (0.8 percent) and civil engineers (0.8 percent), according to the Tech/Engineering Staffing Growth Assessment released July 24, by the research and analysis firm Staffing Industry Analysts, located in Los Altos, Calif.

The report estimated a nine percent growth in 2007, and a 9.5 percent growth in 2008, in spending on entry, mid-level and senior temporary tech or engineering workers. There was a 12 percent average annual growth between 2004 and 2006, according to the data.

Apparently not all the jobs have gone overseas.
