All these sectors will stand out despite the present state of the economy where net employment is being lost and not created in a large majority of sectors.
IT will remain the net aggregator of jobs in 2014 due to recovery in the US economy, it said.
“The US economy is showing signs of improvement… A large number of American firms are expected to increase their IT spend as consumer sales pick up there,” it added.
