Staffing firm Hudson said its index of IT workers' confidence in the job market slid in September, after having risen from May to August. Among other findings, Hudson's report discovered a dip in the portion of IT workers who see their personal finances improving. In August, 51% of IT workers said their personal finances were "getting better these days." That figure fell to 42.5% in September. Confidence in the job market among U.S. workers overall also dropped in September, according to Hudson. IT worker optimism remained higher than that for workers generally.
