We all know the economy is in shambles and there are massive layoffs across most industries, including technology – but there are still new hires happening in tech and new media! Who’s getting hired?

Read on for details on how last week looked.

Hires by Title

We reported on 48 hires last week and the following is the break-out by job title. We’re sure that there are more interesting hires of developers going on and we’re doing our best to find them – but they are a little harder to find than some of the executive hires that get announced by companies. None the less, we find these first numbers interesting.

Hires by Sector

What kinds of companies did we report on last week? Here’s the break-out by sector.

Note: “Other” includes sectors like retail, search, security and gaming this week. For specifics, see the Jobwire site.

We expect next week’s numbers by sector could look very different, but we’ll be tracking them closely and we’ll let you know. We think that people’s new jobs are a lot of fun to find out about and we think the information can prove quite valuable.

RWW Jobwire is sponsored by VisualCV and reports on about 10 new hires in tech and new media every day. We hope that you’ll join us there for all the daily news about the hottest new hires.
