In this new second wave of tech and Internet businesses, there’s a growing need for technology talent — resulting in higher wages and increasingly creative ways to attract and retain talent.
We discuss the trend in this, the third monthly installment of the Technical.ly Podcast with reporters from Philly, Baltimore and Brooklyn.
Structure of the half-hour conversation:
- Why is there a hiring glut?: second wave of tech entrepreneurship, a college degrees mismatch and a immigration limiting the flow of new talent
- Demand side of talent: From beautiful offices coming to Brooklyn where technologists live to making their experience more accommodating and hosting events to better connect with them, firms are competing to access talent.
- Supply side of talent: From supporting apprenticeship programs and k-12 education programs, there is a move to add new talent to the pool.
