What tech hiring or job seeking trends
do you expect to see in 2023?


"In 2023 the tech industry will see an increased spending and hiring in both Cloud Computing and Machine Learning. The increase in computing power due to the advances in quantum computing and AI has been a boon to tech companies, and continuing to advance in this sector will be key to success for many businesses."

The hybrid office is the preference of tech workers in 2023, and Atlanta businesses that adapt their hiring processes to fit the tech community's preference will be the ones to succeed in 2023. This means that businesses will look more regionally, not nationally for hiring, as this allows more flexibility for monthly or quarterly in-office events, while still giving employees the freedom of working from home.

Brandan McLean

Managing Director


"For junior-level workers in the tech community, 2023 will be the year of contracting. With some companies looking to reduce costs, contracting will become a way for those getting their start in IT to get their foot in the door and establish experience. Those that thrive in that environment will then have their options open to be full-time or to continue on as a contractor in new positions."
