Tech sector hiring is hot again as Google, Twitter, etc., grow

By Jon Swartz, USA TODAYUpdated 3d 13h ago |

SAN FRANCISCO — Silicon Valley companies are swooping in and scooping up potential employees in a frenzy of hiring not seen since the Internet bubble of a decade ago.

The tech industry is beginning to resemble an economic Nirvana, as established companies and start-ups alike hire aggressively and court prospective recruits. The competition is so fierce, many employers are dangling goodies such as iPads, nifty cubicles, shuttle service and meals to harvest top talent in engineering, social-media, website and product design, data crunching and analysis, and management.

A surge in tech hires in California could portend an upturn for the larger U.S. economy, says Jesse Harriott, chief knowledge officer at online job site Monster.com.

Jobless_in_Ma,

A lot of people were getting upset because they thought things were going to get worse.
This should give people here some hope.
I also posted a message about lots of companies now are going to start a lot of hiring within the next 6 months.
So people do not give up, we now have some hope for the future.
All is not lost.

They have a LOT of ground to cover to make up for all the jobs lost.

I agree. These new jobs do not help the middle-aged worker. The jobs created in this sector will all go to recent college grads who are up to date on the technology.
