IT industry boom in US leads to demand for skilled migrant

- Posted in America by Visa Bureauon 31 August 2007

The technology industry remains one of the fastest growing career fields. The US Government Accountability Office (GAO) has said employment in the computer sciences and math fields increased by 78 per cent last year, compared to a 17 per cent increase in non-science and tech fields.
At the same time, the GAO found decreasing numbers of science, maths, engineering and technology graduates.

"Because so many people are retiring, there is a huge demand for information technology graduates right now," Heidi Godbold, computer information science chair of Everest College in Colorado, told the Queens Courier newspaper.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics expects high demand for IT workers to continue.
