Tech Roles Continue to Top Best Jobs Lists
Indeed released the 25 best jobs of 2017 based on job postings, salary, and growth opportunity statistics. Almost every job on the list is in information technology, and seven of the top 10 jobs are software engineer or developer roles.
A recent Indeed survey of tech recruiters and hiring managers showed just how difficult hiring for tech talent is today. Here are some of the highlights from the survey:
- 86% find it challenging to find and hire technical talent, with more than a third 36% saying they find it “very” challenging
- 53% of respondents hired tech talent despite candidates not meeting job description requirements
“As every business morphs into the digital version of itself, the demand for workers with highly technical abilities is increasing far faster than supply,” said Indeed Senior Vice President Paul D’Arcy. “The result is a rapid growth in open, unfilled jobs and increases in salaries for the talent that can fill these roles.”
