Tech workers’ Employment Rates Beat the National Average
If you’re a tech worker, you’re twice as likely to remain employed than you would be if you were working in most any other industry.
Tech recruitment firm Dice.com released its Tech Employment Snapshot, tracking the overall rates of both employment and unemployment for technology professionals for the last quarter of 2013. According to Dice’s stats, overall unemployment rates for the United States have edged down slightly over the course of 2013, from 7.7 percent to 7.0 percent. For tech workers, though, it’s stayed at around 3.5 percent for the year, with only a slight third-quarter bump.
