IT jobs begin to stabilizeSep 18, 2023 11:18AM ● By WNC Business
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.
"After witnessing a continuous decline in IT job postings for several months, there seems to be a stabilization in the trend," noted Andrea Fleming, Director of Talent and Workforce Development at NC TECH. "Considering the persistent concerns surrounding inflation and economic uncertainty, as well as continued layoff activity, this leveling can be viewed as a positive development.
“The labor shortage and shifting demographics are not just a passing phase; they are here to stay. Tech leaders in North Carolina will face an enduring challenge in securing top talent,” Fleming continued. “Thankfully, North Carolina has several initiatives working on innovative solutions and partnerships between industry and education to improve the talent pipeline. The NC Community College system alone has five different areas of focus for meeting workforce demands.”
