During the low point of the COVID 19 pandemic in 2020, more than 100,000 IT jobs were lost, and while two-thirds of these jobs returned during the year, 2020 ended with 33,200 fewer IT jobs in the US than in 2019.

According to the latest figures from IT employment consultancy Janco Associates, an additional 70,000 IT jobs are expected to be available this year.
