We cover trends in tech employment often at Technical.ly. But what jobs are in demand right now? What’s on the needed-skills horizon for the technology communities in Delaware, Baltimore, D.C. and Philadelphia? Will cloud familiarity continue its reign as a most-desired skill? Will cybersecurity ever eclipse life sciences as a top growing industry in Philly, and vice versa in the DMV region?
For February of our 2020 editorial calendar, we’re devoting extra reporting to talent acquisition strategies, tech skills and career growth in our four markets. Think: What jobs are most in demand now? And what are best practices for bringing great people onto your team?
On that note, check out few relevant stories we’ve published in recent months:
- What a chief of staff will do at this Baltimore software development consultancy
- Delaware tech jobs by the numbers: How small is the pond?
