"the hiring isn't roaring the way it was last year, but it's still pretty good" kris is the director of the job she said the slow down has not " we are still seeing people go back to work, oddly enough there are still a lot of layoffs, but that is typical churn for silicon valley, that is natural market"
5:49 pm
that i found surprising. usually when we here layoffs we think doom and gloom. this story is because of all the recent layoffs and all the layoffs that are expected this year in the tech sector. but as kris breaks down. a lot of layoffs doesn't nesseccarliy mean a bubble burst. center silicon valley " for us large layoffs are not uncommon, and infact the companies having layoffs are often hiring at the very same time. and that is simply because the churn, it's mergers, it's new products, old ones going away, it's new coding languages, old ones becoming obsolete. that the demands for skills from employers are changing rapidly and that has been happening, companies layoff those with obsolete skills and go search in the market place to scoop up those with the most up to date skills.
5:50 pm
so bottom line kris and other experts i talked to said for tech workers that are highly they will still find it easy to get a job here during this tech to break into the tech scene here job than it did last year. "one thing people can do to is sort of anticipate what is while you're still employed, skills get very obsolete very quickly around here. jobs are here very fast." "what is not such great news is if your young your unexperienced you don't have contacts, it's going to be harder in the future than it was in the past. if you're job seeking in the tech industry right now it's time to step back a little bit from the start ups the dicey companies with no product, or kind of a hazy product, who are not turning a profit yet, personally i would go toward a more established company and turning a profit"
