According to the National Association of Computer Consultant Businesses (NACCB), the drop in IT employment improved during the month of February 2009.  After months of falling sharply (down by 56,000 jobs in December 2008 and 46,000 jobs in January 2009), February saw a loss of only 17,000 jobs.  CEO of NACCB, Mark Roberts states “when you dig beneath the national numbers, the landscape is far more complex.  There are still pockets of relative strength in IT employment in certain geographic regions, industries, and skill sets.”  To view NACCB’s IT employment index, please visit
