The demand for hi-tech workers rose 5.7% from August to September stopping the negative trend of the previous two months, MIT Israel said Sunday citing the results of its monthly survey of the number of job placement advertisements in the country's newspapers by the sector.
Idit Padan, CEO of MIT Israel, warned, however. that compared to last year there was still a negative trend in the market, saying "It is too early to say if we have reversed the trend towards growth."
The Manpower hi-tech workers index, which uses the monthly average of adverts placed in 2002 as its comparable base of 100, improved to 105.2 in September, which was still 12.4% lower than in September last year when the index was at the 99.4 level.
