RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK – In the Triangle’s startup economy, job opportunities are on the rise for the fourth consecutive week. But the pace of that growth has slowed, dropping to an increase of nearly 1.2% from a growth rate of 4.8% observed a week ago.
Still, there are 1,073 more job postings in the Triangle’s startup economy than there were a month ago, an increase of nearly 6.5%.
And the startup economy could see an increase in available talented technology workers who may consider working for a startup, as layoffs continue to sweep across the tech sector.
Potentially buoyed by severance packages that provide economic stability despite the job loss, some workers may look at the Triangle’s blossoming startup sector for opportunity. Of course, even workers not impacted by layoffs could be looking to make a move, as well. According to a recent study by LinkedIn, 61% of all workers have considered leaving their job in 2023.
TechWire Jobs Report’ new format: Here are this week’s headlines:
- What’s happening on the big jobs boards
- Which firms are hiring among a top 50 list of companies in the Triangle
- What’s the latest on hiring across the growing startup/entrepreneurial community

“Some of those bigger companies are going to see turnover that they don’t want, because there will be too much work,” said Josh Haymond, managing partner at Vaco, a contract search firm in Raleigh. “It does seem like companies know, now, that they need to be actively hiring in 2023.”
And job postings rose across the region, too, according to the most recent WRAL TechWire Jobs Report, which found that there are nearly 305,000 openings – not accounting for duplications.
Bottom line: across the region, job postings jumped up by nearly 2.8% compared to a month ago.
