Skip to comments.These US Cities Can't Hire Tech Workers Fast Enough
Posted on 06/17/2013 7:44:52 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
We all want a great, high-paying job. To make that happen, it helps to be in an area where there are more jobs to fill than qualified people to fill them.
We worked with the folks at job hunting site Bright to scout out the places in the country that have the most tech jobs. Bright sifted through 3.5 million job postings, plus government job data. As you can see from the following maps, some cities post a lot of jobs per capita.
Watch each map change to see how the job market changed last quarter.

Why such a big need for IT Techies in a relatively rural area of east-central Ohio?
I’m not seeing many pink/orange circles on that map, are you? Just more bullsh*+ to get the immigration bill passed.
Agitprop for the immigration bill.
In May all the circles show a decrease not an increase. Something’s wrong...
Since when is operating a weed whacker considered high tech?
That chart is nonsense at least as far as Rockford, Illinois is concerned. What few IT jobs there are offer very low pay for the skills and experience requested.
A good friend of mine who runs a custom software company tells me it’s all the failed offshore projects coming home. Offshoring has really burned a lot of companies seeking “cheap” software solutions only to find out managing the results was more expensive in the long run. The guys who did the dirty work have already been paid and don’t have to answer for or manage the end results.
However, I really can't figure out why Pittsburgh, PA is such a tiny dot. After all, we are home to Carnegie-Mellon, one of the top IT universities in the country, substantial operations by Google and a large ethnic Indian subcontinent population with the largest Hindu temple in the world outside of India.
Give it a minute — it’s animated over a couple of months.
Because that is where the stimulus money was directed in order to influence the election.
Why such an increase in the TX panhandle? You’d think hussein would outsource the NSA snoop jobs.
You mean we’re not going to have to deal with some mid easterner who can’t speak English when we call an American business?
I doubt it will have an impact on call centers because the only skill required is English (which many seem to fail at). Software engineering requires a higher skill set and significantly more interaction between the customer and the development teams.
The idea of low cost software is a fantasy for many implementations if you consider the number of hours wasted in debugging and mismatches with requirements. Highly skilled developers need very little management oversight compared to their offshore counterparts and generally produce better quality code, which generally spends far less time in the testing/QA cycle (ie fewer testers/managers required).
Try being over 50 & a white male with high tech experience. Men in this category do not qualify for any job, since Affirmative Action is more important than experience.
BI is promoting BS
lots more expensive than they thought they were.
If you are over 50 and white, start your own consulting business offering real deliverables to the corporation that laid you off. Either they found real labor that can deliver cheaper than you or they will go out of business because you either have a real benefit otherwise you are just whining.
