Unemployment Numbers Remain Low and Tech Sector Hiring Remains High

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that there are more than 5 million job openings, and SmartRecruiters, a software company reports that most of those positions are in the technology and health care fields. SmartRecruiters went one step further, and determined that of the 24 percent of tech job openings, the majority of them are located in San Francisco, New York, Austin and Los Angeles. 

The study also found that not all openings receive a lot of applicants. IT positions, for example, only received an average of 4.3 responses per posting suggesting that employers will be required to keep salaries high in order to recruit and obtain top talent.
