As of December 2023, the IT hiring trends in Hong Kong highlight a competitive job market. A significant challenge is the increasing use of AI in replacing certain IT roles , contributing to job market saturation and recent tech layoffs. This, coupled with the difficulty in finding skilled full-stack and back-end developers, presents a unique challenge.
The gap between the demand for these skills and the supply of qualified candidates is amplified by differing educational paths and the rapid pace of technological advancement in AI. Despite these issues, the industry looks forward to growth and new opportunities, adapting to the changing dynamics of tech employment on towards 2024.
