There’s a little less competition for IT professionals in the healthcare sector this month. Based on a count of the online job postings for tech workers by healthcare providers and health insurers, February saw a 10.5% decline over February last year. Wanted Analytics says the downward trend began in the fall, after jobs peaked in October.
“Healthcare companies saw 7% fewer jobs this year than last, and medical insurance companies declined 14%,” says Wanted. “Overall, IT jobs represent about 3.4% of all hiring demand by healthcare related companies.”
