Job posting activity remained high for the top 50 tech employers (by posting volume) in the second quarter, with 78% increasing tech job postings quarter-over-quarter. With emerging tech hubs like Las Vegas, Sacramento and Nashvillehaving seen the strongest growth, most mature tech hubs also fared well in second quarter.
“We are in one of the hottest tech job markets since the dot-com era, as evidenced by the upward trend in tech job postings since November 2020. What’s most encouraging to me is the sweeping growth we experienced in the second quarter regardless of location, desired occupation or skillset,” said Art Zeile, CEO of Dice, a DHI Group brand. “When pairing the increases in tech hiring with the steadfastly low tech unemployment rate of 2.2 percent, it remains clear that technologists are in incredibly high demand across multiple sectors including tech, defense, healthcare and finance.”
