Minnesota's Tech Talent Problem (And Ways to Solve It)
1 Jun 2022
Much like the rest of the country, Minnesota companies are struggling to find talent. In fact, there are currently nearly two and a half jobs for every job seeker in the state.1 The tech sector is no exception, with over 26,000 positions posted on average every month and an expected 4% projected growth rate over the next 5 years.
Despite the median salary for tech occupation jobs in Minnesota being $92,175, Minnesota employers are still struggling to find people to fill these open roles. Part of this problem is self-imposed, as 90% of tech job postings for the MSP Metro have a bachelor’s degree as a requirement,2 putting Minnesota solidly behind national averages for degree requirements in the tech space.
