Economic uncertainty coupled with widespread tech industry layoffs drove CIOs and CFOs to slow IT hiring last quarter. March was the first month this year that saw an uptick in the number of IT jobs added, according to a new report.
In the first quarter of 2023, the US IT job market lost 13,700 jobs, according to management consulting firm Janco Associates. That contrasts with 51,000 jobs created in Q1 of 2022. Currently, there are now just over 4.18 million jobs for IT professionals in the US.
