Where did all the IT jobs go?


Manufacturing and hospitality jobs were the second and third hardest hit, dropping 35.6% and 35.4% respectively. Interest.co.nz asked recruiter Robert Half what is going on, and the company's director Ronil Singh provided some answers for us. "The main reason why IT job ads have dropped the most is because we are coming off an IT jobs boom," Singh said. There is also the spectre of the much hyped artificial intelligence (AI) technology which is said to be able to replace some IT jobs, but hasn't had much of an impact on the IT jobs market, Robert Half noted. On average, salaries have increased a mere 0.6%, with only infrastructure and engineering workers getting an inflation-busting 9.5% pay rise.
