Arizona Technology Council's Q4 2022 Impact Report Reveals In-Demand Skills, a Decline in Overall Job Postings and ASU's Dominance in STEM Degrees
New Report Also Highlights Significant News and Events in Technology Across the Valley
PHOENIX - April 25, 2023 - PRLog -- The Arizona Technology Council released its Q4 2022 Arizona Technology Industry Impact Report today, highlighting new data across the state's booming technology industry. The first notable takeaway from the report is that technology job posts require a few in-demand hard skills (SQL, Java, Python, AWS), although some posts reflect a skills gap in the market (Azure, DevOps, AWS, APIs). Other key data points include the number of overall job posts dipping below pre-pandemic levels for the first time, and Arizona State University Campus Immersion dominating science and engineering degrees, growing 3.8 times between 2003 and 2021 to 6,100 annual degree completions.
"The Q4 report reflects another strong year in Arizona's technology industry in 2022 while also highlighting the areas in which Arizona can improve to have another explosive year in 2023," said Steven G. Zylstra, president and CEO of the Council and SciTech Institute. "What I found most interesting about this quarter's data is that software engineering disciplines continue to dominate the most in-demand skills as trending technology like artificial intelligence, machine learning and the Internet of Things are becoming so prevalent throughout every industry."
In addition to the highlights surrounding jobs, in-demand skills and ASU science and engineering degrees, the Council saw continual growth across key metrics, including:
