Are you applying for jobs or technical internships? We want to hear about it.
November was a dark month for tech workers. Meta, Amazon, Lyft, Stripe and Twitter have laid off thousands of employees. Microsoft and Google have announced hiring slowdowns.
Hiring cuts and freezes have not only affected veterans. Some tech companies have laid off recent college graduates or rescinded their job offers. Some companies are also reducing their summer internship programs for students next year.
The industry downturn is sending shockwaves through a generation of computer science and data science students who have spent years preparing for careers at top tech companies. Many recent graduates and college seniors are now seeking tech jobs outside of the tech industry, in industries such as retail, banking, and finance.
I’m a technology reporter at the New York Times and I investigate the societal impacts of technological innovations and the business practices of tech companies. And I’m reporting a story about the implications of the industry’s employment slowdown for people starting out in tech careers.
If you’re a student or recent grad applying for internships or tech jobs, I’d love to hear from you.
