As we wrap up another year at the Talent 101 semiconductor blog, let’s take a look back at some of the topics that were top of mind for leaders in the semiconductor industry this year:

Domestic investment and international competition

In 2022, one of the biggest topics in the semiconductor space has been which countries will meet the moment with the appropriate financial and strategic investments needed to develop their own semiconductor sectors. We published several articles on this topic on the semiconductor blog this year, including:

Semiconductor chip and labor shortage

Another topic that was top of mind for anyone in the tech sector this year was the shortage of chips and skilled labor needed to push forward with existing contracts and new innovations. Here are a few blog posts we shared this year monitoring the situation, which isl likely to continue unfolding in the coming months. 


As always, security remains an important topic for leaders in the semiconductor industry. Here are a few articles we published on that topic this year: 


As a managed services provider, we’re quite familiar with the struggles many companies have had finding the talent they need to meet their goals. Here are some articles we’ve published with advice for semiconductor leaders looking to increase the size of their workforce in a year of tight labor markets: 

Industry trends

Despite the challenges facing the industry this year, including security concerns, geopolitical competition, shortages of labor and chips, and other headwinds, there continued to be innovative developments in the tech sector that show exciting promise and potential. Here are a few articles we published that share emerging semiconductor technologies to keep an eye on in the coming years: 

Additionally, we also shared quarterly roundups of relevant news stories in Q1, Q2, and Q3

From all of us at Talent 101, we’d like to wish you happy holidays and a great start to 2023. Be sure to subscribe to the semiconductor blog to stay up to speed on how these topics unfold in the next year.
