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


"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."

With the hybrid office environment being what candidates and companies are looking for in Silicon Valley, businesses are looking beyond the city limits when hiring but keeping their search within a drivable distance of the office. This allows teams to come together semi-regularly for in-person workshopping and teambuilding without needing to spend on costly flights and hotels.

"In 2023, job seekers will be forced to improve their business IQ to find the right role to grow their career. While it's still a great time to be in tech, venture capitalists are starting to be more discerning with their money, so when deciding on a job, candidates will have to go beyond a big salary and look at a business's fundamentals to see if there are any red flags."
