Hiring for tech jobs on the decline in North Carolina

>>> HAPPENING NOW, A HIRING SLOWDOWN FOR TECH JOB SEEKERS. IT IS POTENTIALLY A BIG DEAL IN THE TRIANGLE. A TECH HUB WITH THOUSANDS OF JOBS EXPECTED OVER THE NEXT FEW YEARS. LET'S TALK ABOUT THAT NOW FROM A BIGGER VOICE IN THE TECH AGENCY. IT'S GREAT TO SEE YOU. THERE IS A NEW REPORT OUT SHOWING A 10% DECREASE IN THE NUMBER OF TECH JOB OPENINGS. WHAT IS YOUR TAKE AWAY ON THE STATE OF TECH IN THE TRIANGLE REGION RIGHT NOW? >> I THINK IT IS STILL STRONG. THE REPORT WE RELEASE IS MONTHLY AND SHOWS NOT ONLY THE MOST RECENT MONTH BUT JOB OPENINGS COMPARED TO THE PREVIOUS MONTH AND ALSO A FULL YEAR'S WORTH OF INFORMATION YEAR OVER YEAR. JUNE WAS DOWN FROM MAY. JUNE WAS UP 41% OVER JUNE OF LAST YEAR. WE TENDED TO SEE MODERATION ANYWAY SO IT IS HARD TO TELL WHETHER THIS IS CYCLICAL OR REALLY AN INDICATION OF SOMETHING GOING ON. >> THE TREND IS STILL STRONG RIGHT NOW. LET'S TALK ABOUT THE BIG NAME PLAYERS MOVING TO THE AREA.

YOU HAVE APPLE, GOOGLE, OTHER LARGE COMPANIES MOVING TO THE TRIANGLE. WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THE FUTURE OF TECH JOBS? >> ONE OF THE GREAT THINGS ABOUT OUR ECONOMY IN A NORTH CAROLINA AND IN THE TRIANGLE IN PARTICULAR IS THE BREATH OF INDUSTRIES WE HAVE. ALL OF WHICH NEED HIGH TECH WORKERS. MOST ARE NOT TECH COMPANIES. THEY CAN BE BANKS, CONSULTING FIRMS, HOSPITAL SYSTEMS, YOU NAME IT. THE DEMAND SEEMS TO BE PRETTY STRONG ACROSS THE BOARD. >> THAT MAY LEAD INTO MY NEXT QUESTION HERE. YOUR ADVICE TO RECENT GRADUATES OR ANYONE LOOKING FOR A JOB IN THE TECH SECTOR RIGHT NOW? >> WELL, IT IS A GREAT SECTOR TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH.

AS WE SAW IN THE PANDEMIC, MANY TECH COMPANIES DID SURPRISINGLY WELL BECAUSE THE DEMAND FOR TECHNOLOGY, OF COURSE, WAS VERY HIGH. A LOT OF COMPANIES WERE SERVING THOSE NEEDS AND PROVIDING SERVICES THAT CAUSED THEIR BUSINESSES TO GO UP. NOW ALL OF THAT HAS BECOME NORMAL AND WE ARE ALL VERY TECH ENABLED AND WE ARE ABLE TO DO VIDEO DISCUSSIONS AND SO FORTH. IT TAKES TECHNOLOGY TO BACK THAT UP. THE DEMAND IS THERE. IT MAY JUST SLOW A BIT IN THE SUMMER MONTHS. >> TECH HIRING IS .
