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.


January continued to see job posting activity pick up, with a month over month change of 6%.   This represents 6 out of 6 months where hiring activity has been increasing.  Year-over-year  job posting activity is still down by nearly 22%.  Suggesting that while the recovery in the labor market has been strong , at least as measured by job positings we still are not back to pre-pandemic levels.
