RALEIGH – Even though local hiring activity is up during the last week, as found in the WRAL TechWire Jobs Report, the pace of hiring is not up the same across all job boards, or across industries.

Adzuna shows 2,520 more jobs in Wake County and 2,358 more jobs in Raleigh than it did a week ago. Dice.com, a site for tech jobs, added 322 openings in Raleigh, 340 jobs in Durham and 322 in Chapel Hill, compared to last week’s count.

The numbers dropped modestly on other sites, though. Indeed.com and LinkedIn, for example, show 603 fewer jobs in Raleigh than they did a week ago.

Totals aside, technology positions continue to dominate the local job market, with some of the Triangle’s top tech employers on the hunt for fresh talent. IBM has over 1,000 RTP/Durham positions listed on its website, Lenovo has 274 openings in Morrisville, and SAS seeks talent for 147 jobs in Cary.  More details below.

WRAL TechWire’s weekly Jobs Report compiles the latest information from the region’s top job boards, offering a breakdown of how many jobs are posted, which companies are hiring, and what positions are most in-demand. We’ve also included upcoming job fairs, student-centric resources, and a list of Twitter accounts that track local job openings.

Here’s what’s new since last week’s Jobs Report.


Here’s a look at the total number of local jobs posted on national job boards compared to last week, as of Sunday afternoon.  WRAL TechWire calls special attention to the figures coming from Glassdoor, which we see as a potential anomaly and will monitor what’s happening on this job board in the weeks to come.

*Note: Since this is a huge jump compared to what we normally see in a given week, and the other sites did not show a week-to-week trend reaching the same scale, we’re assuming it’s an anomaly for now. We’ll keep an eye on the totals for next week’s Jobs Report.
