Press Release Summary: Pasadena, CA — The US Chamber of Commerce has come out in
support of the Indo-US civilian nuclear deal, or N-deal, and has urged the US
Congress to approve it before the close of its 110th session. The Chamber says that
the resultant deal may support more than 250,000 IT jobs, and
InformationTechnologyCrossing (www.informationtechnologycrossing.com), an IT job
board dedicated to serving IT professionals, agrees that the deal will surely quell
IT job woes to a great extent. The tech job site has been continually updating its
website with the latest IT jobs daily and has managed to post more than 111,000 jobs
in its database as of the third week of September. The site aspires to support the
slumping job market by adding more and more IT job openings.

Press Release Body: ''The N-deal has the potential of a $150 billion investment, and
if US companies are involved, a sizeable share of that investment could support
250,000 high-tech American jobs,'' says A. Harrison Barnes, the CEO of
InformationTechnologyCrossing. ''What's more, the commercial gain would affect other
sectors too, and the deal should promote good will and an optimistic job market in
the long run."

According to some media reports, the US Chamber of Commerce views the N-deal as a
tremendous opportunity for US companies to compete with one another. The deal is
slated to support an expected 30,000 to 60,000 Mw of new nuclear generating capacity
by 2030, representing a potential $150 billion of new investment, said R. Bruce
Josten, the Chamber of Commerce's vice-president. He also emphasized that
congressional approval of the deal was essential to allow US companies to compete
with nuclear firms from other countries that have already signed deals with India.

Meanwhile, the latest quarterly report by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics has
found that the number of jobs in the information technology industry has been
increasing despite the economic slowdown. According to the bureau, the number of
employed IT professionals increased in the second quarter by 10% as compared to the
2007 second-quarter figures. For example, Barracuda Networks, a leader in web
security applications, plans to expand its research and development center in Ann
Arbor, MI. The project is expected to create 351 new IT jobs, including 185 workers
who will be directly employed by the company. Add to this the growing job count on
InformationTechnologyCrossing, and you definitely get a rosy picture of the IT

''Industries such as banking, retail, real estate, and manufacturing have faced
severe job cuts in this economic downturn. However, information technology is one of
the many recession-proof industries, and the number of jobs in this sector are only
increasing. The only thing that IT job seekers need to know is that there are enough
jobs today and that more jobs are sure to be added. They should also know where to
look for the best IT jobs,'' says Barnes.

According to Barnes, the top IT jobs at present include IT manager, programmer,
systems analyst, software engineer, and support specialist. The job counts for these
job titles on InformationTechnologyCrossing are as follows:

* Software engineer jobs: 9,234
* IT operations manager jobs: 8,748
* Programmer jobs: 6,500
* Systems analyst jobs: 1,866
* Support specialist jobs: 1,195

InformationTechnologyCrossing aims to update its website with all of the most recent
IT jobs. The website plans to add more IT jobs this month in its continuing effort
to offer the highest number of active IT jobs possible to thousands of job seekers.
