CareerJunction has released its latest CareerJunction Index (CJI) report, which shows a spike in new jobs within the IT industry in SA in February.

The CJI uses data gathered from the CareerJunction website to represent labour dynamics in the country.

According to the report, demand for skilled IT professionals in South Africa saw a significant increase over the last year.

The report further showed that hiring activity in the telecoms sector has cooled considerably since the 4th quarter of 2015 – following a steady increase in jobs last year.
