The tech sector has been a job-creation engine for years now, and recent gains in hiring show that trend continuing. Of the 157,000 jobs created in January in the U.S., 22,000 -- or 1 out of every 7 jobs -- were in information technology, according to Foote Partners, an information-technology research firm.

In fact, tech hiring reached levels in January not seen in nearly five years, despite lackluster gains in other sectors. What's more, tech firms have been hiring at sustained levels since February 2012, creating more than 132,000 jobs since that time, Foote Partners CEO David Foote told ComputerWorld.
