RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK — Job openings in the Triangle dipped again this week, according to the most recent edition of the WRAL TechWire Jobs Report.
Last week, job numbers were back above 240,000 for the first time in months, but this week, the report shows a total of 236,744 active listings (not accounting for post duplications), a 1.4% dip after last week’s high.
The NC Technology Association (NC TECH) released its monthly snapshot of available IT positions on Monday, providing a temperature check of North Carolina’s tech job market.
And while the September national jobs report shared positive news, with a larger-than-anticipated net increase in payroll jobs, job numbers in tech were not so positive, shared Andrea Fleming, Director of Talent and Workforce Development at NC TECH.
“Posting totals for IT jobs are down year over year, as well as lower in September than in August,” said Fleming. “The current tech job market is not what it was a year ago.”
According to Fleming, the current job market has a lot of great talent still looking for a next role.
“For the entire year of 2022, job postings were at record levels,” said Fleming. “Now, companies are still hiring, but numbers are significantly lower. While opportunities may be more selective, there’s a wealth of talent ready for their next job.”
