Good Tech Job News -- For Once!

While the overall U.S. unemployment rate is just a smidge under 10 percent, there is a spot of good news in the tech sector, at least according to a report from TechAmerica. While 2010 tech employment still lags 2009 highs, it is moving in the right direction.

Software services gained over 14,000 jobs in the first half of this year, and engineering packed on nearly 30,000.

There was a failure in communications services as this area dropped nearly 23,000 slots. Wonder if the growth of the cloud will make up for this shortfall?
