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.


July saw a modest uptick in job posting activity for technology jobs in San Diego.  Welcomed after the precipitous decline during Quarter 1, postings were up 3% over June 2020 levels.  Much of this activity, however, was attributed to significant increases in posting by temporary and staffing companies with major San Diego technology employers cutting back their job posting activities.  In respect to skills and qualifications, we continue to see a high demand for cybersecurity-oriented skills and certifications, underscoring the severe shortage in the market for skilled cyber professionals.
