BELOW ARE THE TOP 5 BEST WEBSITES TO POST TECH JOBS
The jobs market is alive and thriving in tech — so much so, there are 627,000 unfilled occupations. The booming market grew 2% to about 7.3 million workers last year as the digital economy continued to flourish in jobs for software, cybersecurity and cloud computing, according to Cyberstates 2017, an annual analysis of the nation’s tech industry by technology association CompTIA released Monday.
Job fairs are frequent in California, but one where 250 different tech firms, including top Internet sensations like Snapchat, Tinder and Dollar Shave Club exhibit, is unusual. “There’s never been one this big in Southern California, with so many top companies under one roof,” says Jason Nazar, who is staging Thursday’s TechFair Los Angeles with Mayor Eric Garcetti. Some 10,000 people have registered to attend the free event, and some 250 companies are exhibiting.
The list also includes Tesla, Riot Games and the Honest Co. and companies not based in Southern California, like Airbnb and Uber.
The unemployment rate ticked up a bit to 4.8%. More Americans started looking for work again — a good sign — which explains the small increase in unemployment.
It’s the first jobs report to be released under the Trump administration. However, the Labor Department conducted its jobs survey in the second week of January, when President Obama was in office.
The report represents the economy that Trump is now taking over.
“President Trump is inheriting an economy on its way to full employment, but there is still more work to do,” says Elise Gould, an economist at the Economic Policy Institute.
The jobs report has also become a contentious issue, because President Trump once dubbed the unemployment rate a “hoax.” His labor and treasury nominees have also criticized the number.
