Most of the employment related to e-commerce around the content industries and communication infrastructure such as the Internet. Jobs are both created and destroyed by technology, trade, and organizational change. These processes also underlie changes in the skill composition of employment.

E-commerce is certainly driving the demand for IT professionals but it also requires IT expertise to be coupled with strong business application skills, thereby generating demand for a flexible, multi-skilled work force.
