The North Carolina Technology Association has released the latest data for available IT positions in the state. 

According to data recently published by NC TECH, the Fayetteville MSA showed the highest percentage increase of all MSA’s across NC. With 1,476 IT jobs posted in September, the Fayetteville Metropolitan Area displayed an 85 percent increase in job postings when compared to last year's September postings. 

“September was another month with headlines and data that are often contradictory,” said NC TECH’s Director of Talent and Workforce Development Andrea Fleming in a press release. “For example, both North Carolina and US job postings jumped both month-to-month and year-over-year, while major financial institutions warn of job losses and recessions,” Fleming added. 

NC TECH reported that North Carolina remains a strong market for businesses as the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina recently received a National Excellence Award for Business Retention and Expansion. 

This month was the third highest for the number of IT job postings in this past year.
