Number of Tech Jobs Rising Despite Big Tech Backtracking

Big tech corps have recently been slowing or even freezing their hiring tactics in an attempt to save money in the long run. This rapid U-turn from front-runners like Intel, Warner Bros, Alphabet and Microsoft showcased the potential end of the ‘boom era’ for big tech.

As a result, the tech industry feels uneasy. Tech jobs seemed to be running scarce until The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) released it’s tech jobs report for last month.

This report gives critical insight into growth (or lack of) within the tech industry – particularly where hiring is concerned.

Report Rundown

According to CompTIA’s report, Software Developer roles top the table with the most job listings in the US in October. That’s up by over 2500 since September.

The report also claims that the top 5 companies hiring in tech are Amazon (5330), General Dynamics (3699), Humana (2335), Apple Inc. (2328), and Deloitte (2224).

Plus, the unemployment rate in tech continues to stay consistently below the US national average by a decent margin – and has done since 2014.

So, the facts and figures state it’s not looking too bad after all, right?

From our stance, yes. Big tech activity doesn’t always reflect the state of the entire industry. From what we can see with our own job listings, there’s no sign of tech opportunities slowing down.
