Following the release of the Sept. 2011 employment numbers by the Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics, Foote Partners, a Vero Beach, Fla.-based IT research and advisory firm, observed a net gain of 11,500 jobs in two IT services job sectors – management and technical consulting services as well as computer systems design and related services. This would be the 16th consecutive month of positive job growth in these job segments, David Foote, the company's CEO, said in a statement. “There's no question that consulting firms and systems integrators are benefiting from current corporate staffing strategies for acquiring needed pure technology skills – which is to rent them, not to buy them,” Foote said.
