While the number of new federal hires overall is down from previous years, information technology was among the top fields in which agencies are adding new federal employees, though not necessarily new jobs, according to an analysis released Tuesday.

IT jobs made up 5.3 percent of the positions filled by nearly 90,000 federal employees hired in 2012, according to the Partnership for Public Service’s Fed Figures report. That equates to more than 4,700 new IT workers, bringing the total number of feds in the IT field to 80,492, the Partnership said.
