Tech Market Experts

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

Matt McKinney BW

"In Toronto, the fact that companies are looking to return to the office will actually help tech workers in 2024. When companies only hire people who can commute to the office, it decreases the overall talent pool. Workers living in the city or willing to commute will have a better chance of getting hired in this market."

Matt McKinney

Executive Director


“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


“In 2024, we will see tech workers and hiring managers have a better understanding of how AI tools are impacting their workflows and how to successfully implement them. Artificial Intelligence has the chance to greatly improve productivity across tech, but only if workers are trained properly on what these tools can and cannot do.”
