Tech employment bounces back, sort of

As of June, high- tech employment in the U.S. reached its highest level since 2002, according to a new report from the AeA.

But tech job growth from January to June — 2.5 percent — was less than the average in private sector employment of 3.5 percent, the report said.

Engineering and tech services and software were the fastest growing sectors of the industry. Altogether the industry employed 5.81 million as of June, up about 150,000 jobs since June 2005.
