Amid global economic uncertainty, worrisome cutbacks and layoffs, workers continue to successfully re-employ and new figures are emerging quickly.
The ZipRecruiter report shows that tech workers are most successful at finding re-employment quickly, with 79% finding a new position within three months of leaving their employment; slightly below the average value for all types of work of 83%.
While the current number of 10.3 million job openings has fallen from the previous record, there are still more vacancies than unemployed adults in the United States, creating new opportunities or challenges for workers seeking a career change.
Willing tech workers who may be postponing a career change due to a lack of confidence are told otherwise: innovation, creativity, confidence, and the right skill set are some of the most important qualities an employer may look for.
entertainment and leisure; transportation and delivery; and manufacturing were all sectors where redundant workers found re-employment fairly quickly, suggesting that these sectors are prepared to weather the economic storm and can provide secure work for workers who have been made redundant from other roles.
ZipRecruiter’s chief economist Julia Pollak explains that tech workers are “…continue to be the most sought-after workers with the most in-demand skills,” so while companies like Meta, Microsoft, and Twitter have experienced major layoffs in recent months, opportunities are still available. .
