The Times They Are A Changin’

We are entering an exciting time when it comes to the field of technology. As the economy begins to turn, Oregon’s overall job market is expected to grow 15% in the upcoming years. It is estimated that technology related positions will far surpass that number as well. Most technology related positions are projecting a growth of near 20% in this time with the Internet, Web, Wireless, and Security driving such growth. In a recent issue of the Portland Business Journal they also reported that “Portland’s technology sector expects better days in ‘06”. The leaders in this local charge are expected to be the electronic design, display, semiconductor, and chip manufacturing industries.

That means excellent opportunities for all you Programmers, Developers, Engineers, and Analysts. The improved economy coupled with the falling unemployment rate will make it increasingly difficult for employers to recruit strong, competent, skilled employees and will turn to companies like EdgeLink to help them with their hiring challenges. We are up for the challenge and excited about the forecasts in the industry and the opportunities that it will bring!
