Published:
EUGENE, Ore. — Lane County tech companies are on a hiring binge.
The Register-Guard reported that at least 50 companies in a local tech networking group are hiring, according to the Silicon Shire website.
Among those companies hiring is Symantec, which already has 1,400 employees in Springfield. The company currently has 90 openings.
While other businesses may be struggling to survive, local technology companies are struggling to meet demand for their products and services.
State Employment Department figures show more than 400 software, hardware, gaming, telecommunications and other firms classified as tech companies employ a total of more than 4,000 people in Lane County.
They say hiring qualified people is their biggest challenges. But local tech leaders are recruiting workers from outside the area, plus keeping an eye on local graduates.
