CareerJunction has released its latest CareerJunction Index (CJI) report, which shows that labour demand has declined in the IT and telecommunications industries over the last few months.
The CJI uses data gathered from the CareerJunction website to represent labour dynamics in South Africa.
According to the report, demand for IT professionals in SA saw a decrease in demand during the final quarter of 2015.
However, it is not all doom and gloom.
“IT and telecoms vacancies increased steadily from the second to the third quarter of last year, and remain higher than the same period last year,” the report states.
“Programmers and Software Developers are on the forefront of market demand. This is especially true for programmers with dNet and or C# skills, who are most sought after.”
