Midwest Tech Job Digest: Just Dropped!

Midwest Tech Job Digest: Just Dropped!

Okay, so the layoff numbers still look bad. Nearly 170,000 people have been laid off in the tech industry this year.

But let’s put things into perspective. 

Despite layoffs in the tech sector, job reports indicate that unemployment is relatively low, and overall job growth, while cooling off, remains strong.

Midwest Tech Job Digest

In the tech industry specifically, people are talking about a “return to pre-pandemic levels,” before the massive wave of over-hiring. But the reality is that even with all the layoffs, the tech job growth is still way above pre-pandemic levels, only walking back about 8% of pandemic growth. For example, Amazon’s headcount decreased by 27,000 from 2022 to 2023. But from 2019 to 2022, it increased 743,000. 

The headlines still spell doom and gloom, but the reality is job growth is still happening, and there are lots of opportunities out there. 

There are companies out there that are still hiring! And they want to meet you👇
