New data from Indeed shows that there are more job openings in IT than those that have been lost in recent months. In the company’s January 2009 report, 395,629 jobs were posted vs. an estimated 300,000 jobs that have evaporated in the hi-tech space.
Good news? Sort of. IT listings are still down 43 percent from a year ago.

Jobs in banking and financial services, along with hospitality, are down 48 percent to 144,569, and media and newspaper job listings are down 47 percent with only 24,104 postings.
