Tech hiring has changed dramatically from 2022 to 2023. Tech workers witnessed impacts from layoffs, hiring freezes, inflation, and the explosion of generative AI. Jobseekers and employees saw a turnabout from “work from anywhere” policies to “we’re going back to the office and this time we mean it.”
