While unemployment rates remain near historic lows, getting a bead on how tech workers are faring is complicated. Unemployment rates in the US IT market vary wildly, depending on whether the data comes from CompTIA, an IT trade association, or Janco Associates, an IT business consultancy.

Janco Associates, however, puts IT unemployment at 5.5%, more than a full point above the national average. And ... Janco's data paint a far grimmer picture for 156,000 unemployed IT pros.

"Layoff will continue as more 'routine' IT jobs are eliminated," Janulaitis said. The first to go are help and service desks as AI ... employees to support their genAI initiatives; she sees a coming hiring boom, "it's just going to be in a different area."

"Companies like Facebook will continue to lay off as they look to improve productivity. Facebook shed employees and improved earnings. Over time we see that size pollutes." -- Janco Associates CEO Victor Janulaitis.

Employee attrition has more to do with a reallocation of financial resources than simply the elimination of unneeded workers, according to experts.
