RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK — The NC Technology Association (NC TECH) released its monthly snapshot of available IT positions in the state on Monday, with numbers that showed November hiring was “flat.”

“The November IT job postings remained relatively flat compared to October and September,” said Andrea Fleming, Director of Talent and Workforce Development at NC TECH, in the press release.

Fleming said that the numbers align with trends from previous years, “mirroring the usual slowdown in hiring during the final quarter of the year.”

But she also commented on the question of “a more promising job outlook in 2024.”

“This year has been a period of uncertainty for the economy, and many are eagerly anticipating a fresh start in the new year,” said Fleming in the press release.
