The Results Are In – LinkedIn Polls

Let’s discuss some of the data we have collected recently via our weekly LinkedIn Polls!

Over the past few months, we have been posting weekly poll questions on our LinkedIn Page. These questions covered topics like current technology, resume tips, interview preferences, fun holiday plans, future career goals and more. This time around, we will discuss the results we have received on our tech topic polls in recent weeks.

Weekly polls have been a great way to gage what our LinkedIn audience is interested in. It helps us learn what their thoughts are on new technology initiatives and what they really think about the tech they work with every day.

Q1: Will you be looking for a new role for the new year?

A whapping 58% of those who voted said that, yes, they most definitely are planning to look for a new role in 2023. Whether that is in the same industry & position or not, we can’t confirm. But, it sounds like the majority of voters are not currently happy in their role. AP Professionals is working to change that narrative! Let us help you find a role that fulfills you so that next time around we can get the majority to vote “Happy Where I Am”.

Q2: What makes a techie’s resume stand out in the competitive job market?

This result had a close call for 1st & 2nd place, however, experience in a specific technology ultimately won! Voters believe that the best way to stand out is to gain as much experience as possible in a technology of your choosing. Instead of having general knowledge of all, a deep dive to become an expert in one would be your best bet!

Q3: Which coding language do you prefer for web development?

67% of votes said that JavaScript was the coding language they preferred most. We did think this could be the consensus seeing that this is one of the most popular languages out there. If you are like our voters & enjoy using JavaScript, let us know in the comments below!

Q4: Which is your favorite Data Analysis Tool?

Microsoft Excel took the cake on this one. Excel offers advanced ways of analyzing data without requiring the user to be an expert. As the most used tool out there, Microsoft has made complex data analysis accessible to the everyday worker. 9% of voters noted that other tools were their favorite, they commented to include, Minitab, SQL and Qlik.

Q5: What is the most significant technology that will shape the future of the IT Industry?

Drawing in the most attention with 171 votes, this tech question had a clear winner with 78% of voters thinking that AI will most likely shape the IT Industry going forward. Which brings us to our follow-up question, which type of AI do you think will evolve the most?

Q6: What is your top technology to learn in 2023?

Finally, we learned that a majority of you would like to learn about Cyber Security the most in 2023! We have seen a growing number of companies looking to hire individuals with Cyber Security experience due to the increasing complexity of hackers. As companies grow & develop new systems, hackers are unfortunately quickly catching up!

A 2022 Recap

Breaking records & setting new goals. As we say goodbye to 2022, we are ready to take on 2023.

As we set our sights on goals for 2023, we take a moment to look back on all that we accomplished in 2022. This year brought us new records, new clients, and new expansion opportunities. We are proud to have kept our teams fully intact throughout the year. Not losing a single team member (yet again) while also gaining three new ones! Our recruiters have an average of 12 years of experience in the staffing industry.

At AP Professionals, we held our title as one of the top five Best Places to Work in Phoenix (awarded by the Phoenix Business Journal) this year. We also were able to bring back our Phoenix & Pacific Northwest consultant/client parties which we hope many of you got to enjoy!

In 2022 we are proud to have made over 400 total placements in the IT & Healthcare industries within our team of 12 recruiters. More than half of these positions were remote while a quarter were hybrid and the final quarter onsite. While continuing to work with top Fortune 500 companies, we accepted awards such as The Most Valuable Partner for one of the world’s largest apparel and footwear companies headquartered in Oregon. Though our clients’ needs change each year, 2022 marked a high demand in the areas of Cyber Security, Scrum Masters, Senior Business Analysts, Speech Language Pathologists/Therapists and Program/Project/Product Managers.

With 2023 just beginning we already have so much in our pipeline! We plan to bring you new job opportunities in new locations. While continuing to create personalized relationships with each of our consultants. This year we will work to refine some of our internal processes while also expanding the ones that have been working well for us. As we keep giving our best each day, we look forward to growing with you in the new year!

Happy New Year!
