The Tech San Diego Talent Pulse

We are excited to announce a new partnership with the San Diego North Economic Development Council and introduce the newly updated Talent Pulse, the monthly talent reference report derived from hundreds of job boards that look at labor market trends as measured by job postings.

The raw data is provided by Economic Modeling Specialists International.


October saw hiring activity rebound, up 7% month over month.  This was true among all but one of the occupations (Database administrators) that Techforce San Diego tracks.   That is welcome news since  Year-over-Year  job posting activity is still down 25%, as companies continue to deal with the uncertainty over COVID-19.
