How To Navigate The Brutal Tech Job Market And Get Hired

Sep 12, 2023

I cover Baby Boomer careers, job search and pre-retirement topics. Got it! getty Since late last year, the tech industry has gone on a layoff rampage, letting thousands of people go. In my career counseling practice, I’ve gotten significantly more inquiries from laid-off tech people needing help writing resumes and LinkedIn profiles. Amy called asking for job search help, relaying her story about the coldhearted layoff that had just happened to her. She was a sales rep at a large tech company selling SaaS (software as a service) products. Recently, on a Monday morning, she got on Microsoft Teams for the company’s weekly video conferencing meeting. This week, all 500 sales reps were on the call when the VP of Sales opened with the bombshell, “We’re letting you all go today. We are moving our salesforce offshore, so HR will send you details on returning your phone and laptop.” Amy and all the others were dumbfounded. Then it all got worse when the VP said, “You’ll be getting two weeks of severance,” and he ended the call. A quick proclamation that rocked the world of 500 employees. For 17 years, Jason had a rising career in IT, working for a Fortune 500 company. He was in his mid-50s and had seen his career advance with several promotions. He was caught by surprise when the company decided to eliminate several hundred employees, and he was one of them. The layoff blindsided him. At first, he thought he’d quickly get a new job until he started to look and found that the competition for a tech role was high. A product owner, Emily, was a director at a prominent tech startup with many indirect reports. On Friday morning, the company cut 800 jobs in one day, over 25% of its workforce. Amy’s business unit lost 45 of its 80 employees. The remaining people had a “survivors” online video call for those still employed that afternoon. She said many attendees were crying about learning their friends had lost their jobs. MORE FOR YOU Tech job hunters are facing a brutal job market, where most are used to easily being able to quit a job and move to a higher-paying position in less than a month. Today, with many tech companies in a hiring slowdown, you may be in the job hunt yourself. Or, realizing that layoffs are coming, you are smart and want to start a search now. So how do you move on? Do you need to change careers? Leave your coveted remote job behind because many employers only want hybrid workers? And the biggest question I get from the newly unemployed tech worker is, “How long will it take to land a new position?” This is a question that no one has the answer to, but it will likely take months, not weeks. On the other side of this coin, employers are saying they have been flooded with hundreds of applications for one job opening. One Head of Global Partnerships posted on LinkedIn that the hiring landscape has dramatically changed. They had a good digital marketing position available and had a very large pool of highly qualified candidates apply. Another VP said that when she posted a “We’re Hiring” tag on her profile, she had hundreds of people message her and apply within two hours after she posted a job opening. So how do you compete? Should you even try, or is it time to make a career change and quit tech altogether? For those who see their future and compensation level in the technology industry or the IT departments inside an organization, you need to accept it will be a difficult job-hunting process. But before you do any job hunting, stop and take time to get yourself through the emotional upheaval of losing your job. Dr. Gregg Jantz offered some sage advice in the Forbes article, “ Shocked From A Layoff? Thrive Don’t Just Survive .” Here are a few guidelines to get you started on the right track. Plan out your next career move. Don’t just react; do some self-assessment. This is a pivotal time to review what is the next role. Is it in the same industry, with the same title, a promotional move up, or moving outside of tech? Determine the specific job title that you are looking for. Taking a few classes to learn a new skill or earn a certification might be helpful. Do some research. Before you write a word, start by reviewing several job openings that you’d be qualified for and are at your current level. Highlight the key work tasks, skills, and experience employers ask for in their job openings. You’ll see a pattern, so match your background to what they want. You’ll notice several essential work tasks outlined throughout their opening. You want to incorporate these work tasks, skills, and experiences into your resume. Be sure that you have done that, versus I could do that. Write strategically. Everyone acknowledges the importance of keywords, but what they should be and where and how to use them is often unknown territory. Don’t just splash them all over the page. When reviewing numerous employer job openings, create a list of the typical work tasks you noticed. These keywords belong in your work descriptions. There’s a formula to develop these into your first bullet under any job description. That is to define the job in a few words and list the major work tasks. Here’s an example. Role: Account Executive Managed an $8M sales territory of 250 accounts serving B2B retail clients and eCommerce customers. Responsibilities included: sales, customer success, account management, new business development, prospecting, cold calling, data analytics, market research, tradeshows, and presentations. Advertise results. Employers hire based on what you achieved at your last or current job. Lace your resume with results. They want to read about your accomplishments and your outcomes. Note the results of how you saved money, improved productivity, saved time, made money, and created something new. Look hard to find a referral. Numerous hiring managers have repeatedly told me that if the applicant knows someone personally at the hiring company who can refer them (assuming you’re qualified), it is wise to take advantage of that. Jobvite, a talent acquisition system, reported that employee referrals only make up about 7% of potential candidates, but the success percentage of those referred candidates that were hired is 44%. That makes it well worth the effort to try and locate a connection to someone inside the company. That referral is a powerful introduction and ensures the candidate will definitely be reviewed more carefully.
