We are proud to add to our portfolio of Tech San Diego Talent products! We are introducing a new monthly talent reference report titled Talent Pulse. This new monthly report will take a detailed look at the most critical and in-demand technology jobs. This report differs from several other sources, it is based on actual job postings. This gives us a much more accurate look at the regional talent demand trends. You will note that we also broke out a separate table for software titles so we can track any changes in software job demands. We envision that the audience for this report will be broad. C-level executives can use the trend data to project talent demand and strategic talent direction. Recruiters can track regional talent demand for insights into what jobs are most in demand. Readers can also see information on any changing skill sets are in demand and benchmark against your own company. We will also be sharing Talent Pulse with our University partners to make sure curriculums are keeping pace with a changing job market.
This report will be produced monthly through a strategic partnership between Tech San Diego and the San Diego Workforce Partnership
Executive Directors Comments on September Monthly Report
Prior to the September report we had pulled August talent trend numbers, both August and September showed a dramatic decline in the actual number of job postings. For example software positions plummeted by 15%. September declines mirrored August. While the report still saw healthy postings of tech jobs, the current two-month downward trend may signal that we are exiting the hyper talent demand we have seen the past few years. This could have a positive impact on the regions ability to both recruit and retain a tech workforce.
