“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.”

Phill Perkins

Vice President


“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.”
