The U.S. added far more jobs than expected last month, according to data released by the Labor Department, as the economy walks the tightrope of maintaining a strong labor market while simultaneously bringing down inflation to a palatable level.

January’s job report showcased a robust job market with 353,000 new positions, starkly contrasting with the tech sector’s layoffs, including significant reductions at companies like Microsoft and eBay. This period of workforce realignment, amidst a backdrop of economic recalibration, presents a unique moment for technology leaders.
