What tech hiring or job seeking trends
do you expect to see in 2022?

Dane Robinson
Executive Director

"The Chicago IT industry in 2022 will have an emphasis on speed in the hiring process. Top tech talent is in high demand, and a drawn-out interview process is becoming a major red flag. The expectation is going to be that hiring will be much more streamlined in 2022.

Kelsey Prisby
Executive Director

"As we look to the year ahead, the tech companies that are most willing to adapt to their employees’ needs will be the most successful in both attracting and retaining talent. In particular, the ability to retain employees is now more important than ever as we see the talent shortage continuing to widen.  Whether that be offering a hybrid work setup, increasing benefits, or improving flexibility to prevent burnout, building an employee-first culture should be the focus in 2022.

Milenko Beslic
VP of Engineering

"I believe that 2022 will see even more of an emphasis on diversity and inclusion inside the tech industry. The tech world has always been at its best when everyone has a unique voice at the table. Companies are realizing that having different perspectives is a driver of success, and with 100% remote opportunities becoming normalized, companies can go beyond the main tech hubs to find great IT talent that normally would not get the opportunity.
