Philadelphia in 2023 is going to be about the tug-of-war between the wants of candidates vs. companies. While most candidate demands were being met in 2022, that has somewhat shifted near the end of the year as companies are being more selective in hiring. How things like compensation and hybrid work environments shake out in 2023 will define tech hiring for years to come.

Chris Walek

Executive 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."
