IT postings stabilizing; NC repeats as Top State for Business

RALEIGH - The NC Technology Association (NC TECH) has released its monthly snapshot of available IT positions in the state, broken down in several ways (top listings by MSA, job type, skills, certifications). 

 This monthly Tech Talent Trends Alert is released in the latter half of each month with a snapshot of the previous month as well as a rolling thirteen-month chart of IT job openings in NC so that trends can be seen.

  “If you use a magnifying glass, the June figures are up slightly over May, but they’re still down compared to the record-breaking months of 2022. Sharing these statistics as North Carolina has a 2nd annual win for CNBC’s America’s Top State for Business, it’s hard to not be optimistic,” said Andrea Fleming, Director, Talent + Workforce Development for NC TECH. “The state ranked first overall, but also first in the critical Workforce category of the study. North Carolina remains at the top for attracting and retaining talent.”

“The study also highlighted the strength in career education,” Fleming continued. “The NC Community College system programs are well matched to industry needs and leaders are frequently in communication with businesses and industry groups like NC TECH to stay current with education offerings. This is especially important in areas such as Information Technology.”  

The newest and previous IT Job Trends reports are available here, with more talent-related information and resources here.
