The U.S. tech sector has remained in hiring mode this year, according to the latest data from IT trade association CompTIA. But even amid a red-hot job market, many in the tech industry are worried the good times may be coming to an end.
CompTIA found national postings for tech jobs surpassed 443,000 in April and 1.6 million year-to-date. That’s an increase of 40% over the same period last year.
In the Milwaukee metro, tech job postings have grown 18% to 8,682 this year compared with 7,340 a year ago. Across Wisconsin, tech postings were up 27% to 21,946 from 17,333 last year.
