Specific features of the IT labor market are laid out which dictate the variance of fuzzy conditions of demand for and supply of IT specialists and the multiple-choice pattern of their reconciliation. Levels of modeling of the supply and demand interaction in the IT labor market are singled out. Task formulation and the purpose of managing the demand for and supply of IT specialists are discussed. A microlevel method of supply and demand management in the IT labor market based on fuzzy situation analysis and fuzzy pattern recognition is proposed.
