As with the national workforce, the Triangle’s job market is steadily recovering from the lows brought by the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the pace of hiring has been somewhat erratic in recent weeks.
Every Sunday, WRAL TechWire tracks the total number of local positions posted on national job boards, then we compare it to the previous week’s count. Our latest results are somewhat mixed, keeping with the trend of recent weeks. Thousands of jobs were added across Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill on Adzuna and Indeed.com, while other sites such as LinkedIn and ZipRecruiter show drops over the last seven days. (See the full breakdown in the section below.)
A consistent theme in today’s local job market is the spread of tech demand outside of the tech sector: As NC TECH President and CEO Brooks Raiford told TechWire last week, the growth of tech workers in non-tech jobs is expanding even faster than at tech companies. The demand is especially high at finance and insurance firms, a sector that is well-represented in the following Jobs Report. From Truist to Bank of America to Blue Cross NC, major employers are continually growing their tech workforce in the Triangle area.
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.
