Along with the massive disruption of much of the economy, COVID-19 brought explosive growth to many technology companies. Today, STEM professions remain among the highest-demand fields for the foreseeable future. But the pandemic-fueled revenue has declined, and some of the best-known names in the tech sector have recently announced layoffs of highly skilled engineers and scientists, among others.
NSBE members, never fear! The economic cycle will turn for the better. And in the meantime, if you find yourself in need, we are here for you with career support.
Please be sure your information in NSBE’s Career Center (https://careers.nsbe.org) is updated to give you access to employers seeking diverse STEM talent.
And make the most of NSBE’s new partnership with Karat — the world’s largest interviewing company — and its work with the Brilliant Black Minds movement, which is seeking to double the number of Black software engineers in technology.
