The information technology job market is on the rise in the Wilkes-Barre and Scranton areas, The Citizens' Voice reports.
"There's a pretty broad and extensive network of IT people around here," said Chris Haran, chief information officer at TMG Health Inc., a medical billing, management and business services company that employs 950 people in the area. TMG's local IT staff has expanded to 140 from 110 last spring.
For eight years before joining TMG about six months ago, Haran headed the Northeastern Pennsylvania Technology Institute and the Great Valley Technology Center, which promote technology-based economic development and high-skill employment.
"Our goal was to create technology employment in the area and maybe we are seeing the fruits of it," Haran said. "A lot of firms are starting to recognize technology is important to their business."
