Demand for hi-tech workers grew 21% between January and May compared to the parallel period a year earlier, Manpower Israel said Sunday, citing its monthly survey of newspaper announcements. In May, the demand for workers increased 0.3% over the previous month and 13% compared to May 2005. A total of 3,201 help-wanted ads were placed by the hi-tech sector last month, with the biggest demand for programmers where 1,271 positions were available. MIT said the data shows a continuation of the growth trend which started last year.
