ALEXANDRIA, Va., July 16, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The number of IT jobs grew 0.3 percent sequentially last month to 4,664,800, according to TechServe Alliance, the national trade association of the IT & Engineering Staffing and Solutions industry. On a year-over-year basis, IT employment has grown by 3.2% since June 2013 adding 144,200 IT workers.

Engineering jobs grew again in June, up 0.3 percent sequentially to 2,506,300.  On a year-over-year basis, engineering employment has grown by 1.8% since June 2013 adding 44,900 engineering workers

"While the overall job market has only recently shown signs of robust growth, IT employment has been on an upward trajectory for some time.  Growth in June IT employment remains strong; posting a growth rate virtually identical to the prior two months.  On the engineering side, we continued to see an accelerating rate of growth with some of the best jobs numbers in recent memory," stated Mark Roberts, CEO of TechServe Alliance. "Given the low unemployment rate in many IT and engineering occupations, we are in the phase of labor market cycle where future growth is more likely to be constrained by an inadequate supply of talent rather than by demand," added Roberts.
