More than 60 percent (60.9%) of Americans agree that the U.S. is a global leader in the technology industry. Among those that disagreed, a lack of quality education was the reason most cited as contributing to the U.S. not being a global leader in the technology industry (56.5 percent).
The survey of more than 1,000 U.S. adults, explored the behaviors, perceptions and attitudes toward technology, desirable job benefits, the willingness to relocate, and other IT employment-focused themes. In an increasingly competitive talent landscape, the survey results provide valuable insight for today’s businesses as well as technology job seekers.
There is tremendous opportunity across a range of industries and U.S. regions for those seeking technology positions. In this candidate’s market, many employers are offering competitive salaries and benefits to garner top talent and help preserve the country’s position as a technology leader. However, the tech talent gap will only widen without the necessary education and tools, which is a real concern for many Americans and employers.
