IT hiring registered its highest net growth in five months, with modest gains in both telecommunications and data processing adding to the 18,200 tech positions brought on by U.S. companies in June, according to an analysis of Bureau of Labor Statistics jobs figures by IT hiring consultancy Foote Partners.

In the separate federal job segments that represent IT careers, there was a net gain of 18,200 jobs, which was approximately 8,400 more jobs than were added in IT in May and the highest monthly gain since the first month of 2013. Foote Partners put the growth in the first half of 2013 at 43 percent higher than the rate of hiring over the first six months of 2012.
