Tech Market Experts

What tech hiring or job seeking trends
do you expect to see in 2024?


“While neither the employed nor their employers have the upper hand in the 2023 job market, 2024 will see job seekers and hiring managers coming to a compromise on what is most important in an employment agreement. Companies cutting costs & corners with tech talent will lose out, and candidates may need to consider a more hybrid (versus fully remote) work environment.”

Kelsey Prisby

Vice President


“Even as the Silicon Valley market has improved as we head into 2024, it is still a challenging time to find tech talent that can thrive in a role on day one. While businesses looking to hire in 2024 will have plenty of applicants, hiring managers will need to look beyond skill sets and into the intangibles to make sure a candidate will succeed in a position.”

Scott Brosnan

Executive Director


“Tech workers in 2024 need to have an honest assessment of the skills they bring to the job market. Truly “A-level” talent still have the opportunity to essentially name their price and work environment, but for everyone else, candidates can’t set unrealistic expectations or risk missing out on otherwise quality opportunities.”
