Consulting firms are having to rethink their recruiting strategies due to the workforce’s shift in preferences (in-office work to remote and hybrid options) and legislative limitations on H-1B visas (traditionally, a strong source of talent for consultancies). Engineers and developers are in especially high demand with firms bringing software development in-house.  View the Tech in Consulting Report to learn more.


Companies big and small in the finance industry are investing in tech to keep up with consumer demands and realize a more inclusive future for banking. Technologists with knowledge of programming languages, such as Python, Java and SQL, are in-demand for help with data analytics, application development and database management.

Alleviation of staffing issues (a byproduct of the extreme strain put on the industry by the pandemic) is driving a more concerted move toward digitization. Large numbers of job postings for foundational roles like software engineers and a variety of analysts show that the healthcare industry is focused on building from the ground up when it comes to tech support and innovation.
