What tech hiring or job seeking trends
do you expect to see in 2023?

Greg Olsen
Executive Director

"In 2023, a primary focus for companies in DC’s marketplace will be finding efficient ways to incorporate hybrid-work environments without impacting their team’s overall productivity and the relative time it takes to make a hire, regardless of the seniority or skillset they’re identifying. Remote work has allowed for many of these companies, regardless of their size, to expand candidate searches nationally but – especially for companies in or connected to the federal space – identifying candidates who are still able to work physically onsite still takes a premium, given the need and ability for future team building.

"For junior-level workers in the tech community, 2023 will be the year of contracting. With some companies looking to reduce costs, contracting will become a way for those getting their start in IT to get their foot in the door and establish experience. Those that thrive in that environment will then have their options open to be full-time or to continue on as a contractor in new positions.

John Rosenbaum
Chief Information Officer

"In 2023, the tech industry will see increased spending and hiring in both Cloud Computing and Machine Learning. The increase in computing power due to the advances in quantum computing and AI has been a boon to tech companies, and continuing to advance in this sector will be key to success for many businesses.
