Hiring trends are cyclical, with new industries dominating the hiring pool each year. 2019 has already revealed itself to be focused on new and exciting technology—with a strong economy to back it up.
This puts industries like real estate and streaming at the top of the list of most desirable companies to work for this year. At Woo, we did some research to spotlight the current top industries, both for employers and employees. Here’s a peek at the titans of each industry.
Perhaps the most competitive hiring market around, the streaming industry (both audio and video) is made up of some of the biggest giants in technology.
Mostly based along the West Coast of the United States, this market is extremely competitive, both for employers and job seekers.
Strong candidates want to work for the top streaming companies, who essentially have their pick of the litter when it comes to new hires.

This type of demand is leaving qualified job candidates holding much of the power when it comes to hiring.
Companies are desperate for employees who are knowledgeable in cyber security, and they’re willing to pay accordingly.
