IT sectors including ISPs, search portals, and data processing companies increased hiring of IT workers, according to the NACCB report.

Also, some selected non-IT areas like financial services and health care increased their hiring.

Overall, IT employment in September 2006 was 3,667,100 -- up 4.2 percent from September 2005.
