A new report has found the combination of consumer demand and the advancement of business applications for new technology continues to drive job growth in the high tech sector.
According to the Jones Lang LaSalle report, which tracked 18 markets, jobs in the high tech industry are increasing at nearly four times the national average of other occupations since the height of the economic downturn in February 2010. The report also found high tech companies drove up the demand for office space and an increase in venture capital investments.
Of the more than half million office jobs created since last year, the report found 127,000 positions were in the high tech services with San Francisco, Silicon Valley and Baltimore adding the biggest numbers to the high tech workforce over the past year and a half.
