IT Jobs In Crisis

The IT industry is somewhat insulated, but not at all immune, to the massive economic disturbance caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Tech experts benefit from next-generation tools that have made it possible for many in their ranks to work from anywhere in the world, sustaining professions in a job market that’s in historic decline because of worldwide quarantines and public health crises.
