I feel like a broken record every time we bring up the tight labor market. As talent acquisition professionals, you know the struggles of finding talent these days, so why rub salt into the wound, right? And this is especially true when it comes to hiring tech talent.

Gelber says that there is an overall shortage of skilled tech workers who know how to code, whether they’re doing mobile app backend development or developing cloud-computing platforms. Because tech workers are in such high demand, these jobseekers have the upper hand, but research continues to show that men still dominate the tech space.
