Triangle Tech Connect is a monthly review of local entrepreneurial Technology Sales and Marketing career opportunities.
October brings a break in the heat and beautiful landscapes brimming with Fall foliage. Leaves aren’t the only thing that will change. With election day just around the corner, companies are working hard to predict how the election will affect the economy and the changing job market. Pre-election reaction reveals that employers are responding to the uncertainty of the outcome by reduced spending and hiring. A recent study from Duke University revealed that 47% of CFOs cite “political uncertainty” as the reason for a reduction in hiring activity. Only 29% of small businesses said they think the national economy will improve over the next 12 months down from the 48% who said the same last year, according to a recent Bank of America study. Below are some of the local Triangle companies that are hiring.
