It has been an interesting year in tech land. In tandem with hundreds of thousands of column inches about the “Great Resignation” (aka the pandemic trend which saw more than 47 million Americans quit their jobs in 2021, an annual record) came 2022’s raft of layoffs.
But despite the volatility in the labor market, 44% of employees are “job seekers,” according to Willis Towers Watson’s 2022 Global Benefits Attitudes Survey.
There are many reasons why you might consider looking for a new job in 2023: more money is top of the list for over half of workers who participated in Willis Towers Watson’s survey. Better benefits, tailored learning and development opportunities or a more flexible work style are all genuine motivating factors too.
So, if you are thinking about spending some time over the holidays tweaking your resume, then here are seven companies hiring into 2023. For plenty more open roles browse the VentureBeat Job Board.
