As the world becomes more connected and digital transformation becomes a key workplace strategy for many industries, technology professionals have more opportunities than ever before. With digital job capacity expected to surge to nearly 150 million globally in the next three years according to LinkedIn Data, those with the right skillsets and qualifications are in the driver’s seat when it comes to making a career move. As 2022 picks up, here are some tech hiring trends to keep an eye out for:
Companies are relocating and ramping up their hiring for fully remote employees
With remote work on the rise, companies no longer need to limit their talent search to those in their immediate area. Because of this, we’re seeing a trend in tech organizations moving their headquarters outside major high-rent areas like Silicon Valley and New York. By doing this, companies can save money, focus on remote tech hiring, and ultimately broaden their talent pool. For professionals, this means more opportunities with companies or jobs that may have been out of reach in the past.
Tech Hiring is up, skills are hard to find
With a limited supply of technology talent and a booming demand for skillsets, technology professionals looking to make a career move, should consider making a move now. While software developer skills are in especially high demand, we’re seeing companies making large investments in roles pertaining to cyber security, data analysis, and cloud platforms.
Startups are swiping up talent
Large companies like Meta, Amazon and Google aren’t the only ones taking on a big chunk of the tech hiring pie. As technology is disrupting the workforce, venture-backed technology startups are popping up and taking on their fair share of hiring. With competitive packages and perks, these types of roles are highly enticing for top talent. As a technology professional on the move, you should start to see more of these types of roles popping up in your search.
