"IT professionals enjoyed a dramatically improved hiring
landscape in 2010, marked in particular by the fewest job cuts in a
year since 2000.
"That's according to global outplacement firm Challenger, Gray
& Christmas, which on Monday reported that employers announced
plans to cut only 46,825 IT jobs during 2010--a full 73 percent
fewer than the 174,629 technology job cuts in 2009.
"That 73 percent decline also exceeds by far the 59 percent
decrease in overall job cuts across all industries, which fell from
1,288,033 in 2009 to 529,973 in 2010, the firm reported."
