Weekly Job Digest

There’s no doubt a shift is happening in the hiring landscape. Many companies, big and small, have gone from rapidly hiring to cutting teams and reorganizing their labor force. But that’s not the whole story. 

Despite the media’s focus on layoffs and hiring freezes, there are still many companies that are hiring. Just in the last couple of weeks, we’ve seen companies continue to hire, raise money and grow.

Labor Market & Startup Trends

To stay on top of everything happening in the tech hiring market right now, we’ve partnered with our friends at PeerSignal. Using their B2B Hiring Tracker and other data at our fingertips, we’re trying to paint a more complete picture of the tech industry right now. 

According to Crunchbase, global venture funding reached its lowest monthly funding point in the last two years. With $25.2 billion raised in August, it's down 52% yearly and about 10% month over month as fewer startups are raising funding at every stage. Less money of course means hiring slowdowns, layoffs, and companies closing their doors. 

But while the overall venture funding may be slowing down, one industry saw quite a bit of growth in August: energy-related startups. Energy startups dominated the largest funding rounds in August, according to Crunchbase. Four out of the top ten funding rounds were for energy-related startups, and three of them were in the top 5.

With the passing of the Inflation Reduction Act, which was signed into law in August, climate tech startups everywhere are seeing a huge boost. That's because the act includes a $370 billion investment in clean energy initiatives. Purpose Jobs member GreenLancer is seeing rapid growth because of this — they’re hiring, opening a new office in downtown Detroit, and building up their team to develop EV charging infrastructure.
