IT Sector Optimistic About 2009

In today's recession, it's hard to find a sector where business is faring well. However, the IT sector is doing just that and has even bigger plans for 2009. 

An astounding 83% of business owners in the information and communications technology sector report business is going “very well”, according to a small business survey.

The latest MYOB Small Business survey also reveals that 68% of owners in the IT industry are optimistic about the future, compared to the national average of 61%.

While 46% of businesses said they expect to be performing better over the year, that number jumps to 48% in the IT industry. And while 37% expect to invest more into the business over the next six months, an average of 46% in the IT sector expect to spend more to grow their business.

The news for employment is also good. While only 14% of businesses intend to hire more workers in the coming months, 16% of IT businesses expect to increase staff numbers.

It seems the IT sector is one of the few industries out there that has proven itself recession-proof. With IT career training from Kaplan Continuing Education you can be certified for a career in the Information Technology industry.
