The number of employers seeking web developers has grown by almost 70% in the last five years, according to data from consulting firm CareerBuilder.
However, the number of companies looking to hire web developers is increasing by nearly 30%.
The numbers of companies hiring web developers in 2018 have increased by nearly 5,000 percent from the year before, CareerBuilder said.
That’s because the number seeking web development internships has been increasing steadily, even as employers have seen their overall hiring practices change.
A year ago, Career Builder said the number would have been around 5,200, and it is now up to 12,500, it said.
The number of firms seeking web developer internships increased by a whopping 10,000% over the same time period, the company said.
