IT jobs Increasing in Singapore: IDA

According to a recent government survery, the demand in the infocomm sector have increased to 157,000 from 143,000 (below). This represents 9.7% increase of jobs created. The figure of 157,000 also includes 16,100 job vacancies.
This of course is a significant opportunity for DBIT graduates who, as a wrote yesterday, have been shown to land top IT jobs such as programmer/analyst or IT consultant in a variety of industries.
You can see from the above table that the IT Service and Software segment, the top two employers in infocomm organisations, have been growing at a steady rate. This makes DBIT, which focuses on software and services, well positioned to employ graduates in these segments.

Below is the official statement from the Infocomm Development Authority (IDA):

"The number of employed infocomm manpower grew by 0.4% to reach 141,300 as at Jun 20101. Together with 16,100 infocomm job vacancies, total infocomm demand reached 157,400 in 2010 as compared to 143,500 in 2009. This represented an increase of 9.7%, or 13,900 infocomm jobs created.

"More than half (58%) of infocomm manpower were found in infocomm organisations, with the remaining from end-user organisations. Operations & Support, Infocomm Sales & Marketing, and Application Engineering were the three largest infocomm job categories in 2010".
