The Market for Tech Talent


Depending on the attrition rate for the retirement of baby boomers, tech jobs are estimated to double over the next decade, and while many perks from Silicon Valley companies have become legendary, the new pool of tech talent is looking for the same motivators found in most industries: advancement opportunities, recognition, continuing education, flexible work schedule and telecommuting. As far as hot tech employment locations, several cities such as New York City, San Francisco, and Boston will remain tech talent hubs. But there are some secondary hubs that are gaining traction such as Austin, Seattle and Vancouver.

Some of the fastest growing jobs in technology include web developers, data scientists, big data, software engineers and security professionals. What’s interesting is that tech talent can come from non-traditional backgrounds and thanks to technology there’s a variety of ways to get an education and experience in order to become a coder, a web designer or some other tech professional.
