RALEIGH – Across the Triangle’s startup economy job opportunities have risen for the third consecutive week after a holiday slump.  In fact, the analysis of jobs postings for WRAL TechWire’s weekly Jobs Report finds a 4.8% increase in the number of job postings in the startup economy – that’s 800 additional roles – posted in just a week.

That’s also 864 job roles more than a month ago, or 5.24%.

“Simply put, we are continuing to see a high hiring volume in 2023,” said Josh Haymond with Vaco in Raleigh.  “Our team is busy with new search work, taking in new projects each week.”

In fact, Haymond noted that more of the firm’s clients are hiring rather than making layoffs that have been hitting the tech sector.

“We have seen the layoffs impacting large, multinational corporations versus high-growth clients which continue to grow organically and through acquisition, which drives a continued need for talent,” said Haymond.  “We are also seeing more and more clients rely on Vaco for point-in-time staff augmentation from our consulting base, as we’re able to help get through the work on the required cadence, bringing added horsepower to our client’s teams that often can’t high quickly enough due to the (still high) demand.”
