The NC Technology Association has released its monthly snapshot of available IT positions in the state.

According to NC Tech, in the Fayetteville MSA, which encompasses Cumberland, Hoke and Harnett Counties, 1,065 IT jobs were posted in February which was a 24 percent increase from the number of IT jobs posted in the Fayetteville MSA in February 2022. The Fayetteville MSA was the only MSA in North Carolina to see an increase in IT job postings for the month of February.

“February IT job postings were the lowest in at least four years. While this is concerning on the surface, the NC unemployment rate remains steady at a low 3.8 percent,” said Andrea Fleming, Director, Talent + Workforce Development for NC TECH, in a press release.

“Also positive are the gains in the latest Federal Jobs report: overall jobs in North Carolina increased by more than 10,000 with top gains in leisure, hospitality, construction, government, education and health,” Fleming continued in a press release. “These are all areas which have seen slower rebounds from the pandemic. The tech job market remains in murky territory with rebalancing of pandemic hires combined with economic concerns.”

Fayetteville’s resilience is notable. These numbers are a reflection of the city’s sustained growth and encourage a positive outlook for the future job market.
