Information technology job openings across North Carolina have declined for a second consecutive month.
The declines in IT jobs across the state in April and May followed three consecutive monthly increases, according to the N.C. Technology Association.
"The technology job market is slowing down," noted the report compiled for NCTA by SkillPROOF, which focuses on job research. "This is a broad development across the nation."
From a longer-term perspective, IT job seekers are still better off today. Despite the 5 percent decline in May, the 4,390 IT jobs advertised was 34.3 percent higher than a year ago.
Nationwide, the number of IT jobs advertised rose seven-tenths of a percent.
