It appears as if there are plenty of jobs for computer system professionals in the Cleveland, Ohio area. Industry experts across the country said that they are also on the hunt for high-tech workers, even as other industries appear to be at an economic standstill.

The director of the North East Ohio Software Association (NEOSA), Brad Nellis, told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that a recent survey of its more than 2,500 members found that 68 percent of companies plan on adding to their workforce during the next year.

“Historically, the number of companies with current openings remains very high; in fact, it's the highest it's been in the more than 5 years that we've been doing this survey,” Nellis noted.

According to the recent unemployment numbers, Cleveland is not the only exception when it comes to hiring in the high-tech sector.

The Wall Street Journal reports that almost 6,000 new jobs were added nationwide in June 2010 in the computer systems industry, including work for designers, installers and programmers.

During the last year alone, U.S. job growth in high tech rose by approximately 70,000 new positions.
