IT job market growth slowed from 9,800 jobs in January to 7,900 in May, according to Janco Associates, international consulting firm that analyzes data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics on a monthly basis.

There have been 87,600 jobs added in the last 12 months, and 7,900 — seasonally adjusted — of those were added in May.
