A new report this week about high-tech hiring in North Carolina concludes that there are fewer openings than in the same month for 2012 and 2011. But are there really more jobs available than those advertised? Yes, says talent management firm Select Group.

In a new series launching today for our Insider members, WRALTechWire will be taking an in-depth look at the IT job market.

Chris Dale, regional vice president of talent management firm Select Group, talked about information technology job hiring trends with WRALTechWire in a series of three exclusive video interviews. And he says that there are more jobs available than are being disclosed publicly by firms who have IT needs

The next videos will focus on:

  • Which companies are hiring, and in what areas? Some of the names might surprise you.
  • What skills are companies looking for? How do people looking for jobs prepare themselves and find what jobs are available?

Why do this series?

In a recent survey, WRALTechWire asked readers what types of news they were most interested in. One request was not surprising, given the state of the economy.

Jobs – and layoffs.

  • Where are they?
  • Who is hiring?
  • What companies are making layoffs?

 We’ve just posted the second interview.

Many more stories and video interviews are in the pipeline.
