The tech industry is facing a paradox as we hear of a global tech skills shortage on the one hand and big tech layoffs on the other due to economic uncertainty. In this podcast, Andrew Hogan joins me on Tech Talks Daily to discuss the impact of these trends on design hiring and what the recent Design Hiring report by Figma has to say about it.

Andrew is a thought leader in the field of Design and UX with over 50 published Forrester reports and is recognized by leading publications such as Fast Company, WSJ, Forbes, and Business Insider. He also provides expertise in creating training modules for CX certification, including journey mapping and the integration of data/AI and Design.

So, how is the paradox of tech hiring impacting Design hiring in particular? The Design Hiring report provides valuable insights into the current state and future prospects of the design industry. From the report, we can see that despite the economic uncertainty, the demand for design talent is increasing. This presents both a challenge and an opportunity for designers and design teams looking for work or looking to hire.

I learn how the tech industry may be facing conflicting trends, but the design industry continues to thrive. With the help of innovative solutions like Figma, design teams can navigate the challenges and seize the opportunities presented by the current job market. Keep an eye out for the Design Hiring report for a more in-depth understanding of the design industry and its future prospects.
