Ode to the Future of Tech

Ode to the #FutureOfTech

Thanks for tweeting with us on #TChat. The chatter moves quickly, so here’s a short recap* in case you missed anything.

  • Technology is pervasive and if you haven’t already joined the movement, 
jump on board.
  • Nearly three out of four tech-focused hiring managers (73%) plan to hire 
more tech pros in the six months ahead.
  • Still not convinced? Almost one quarter (24%) of those surveyed indicated their additional hiring would be “substantial.” That’s a jump from 19% who said the same thing at mid-year last year.
  • One reason for the surge in hiring is voluntary departures. When asked about the frequency of quitting at their company, 42% of hiring managers reported an increase from last year—up from 33% who said the same thing just six months ago.

If you couldn’t already tell, we love everything tech. Therefore, we thought it would only be fitting to giveaway some wearable tech during #TChat.

    Sometimes bootstrapped ventures need tech skills beyond their limits. What’s the best way for small startups to attract tech rockstars away from the big guns, when it’s nearly impossible to compete on salary and immediate benefits?

  2. I was surprised to learn during this #TChat that Tech Talent turns down approx 34% of job offers. I knew that their employment rate was lower than the national average but that says a lot about companies and how they are presenting themselves to candidates. Companies need to work harder on ‘branding’ themselves and showcasing what their strenghts are, what their corp cultures are and what makes them unique.

    Tech talent will be in high demand in 2014….not just big companies hiring tech talent but start-ups and small-med businesses as well. Companies and recruiters need to sell their companies…know what makes them different and unique to work there.
