Last week we provided recent college graduates with job search tips. So this week we thought we’d cover the best cities for tech jobs for recent graduates.
The recruiting software company Jazz (previously known as the Resumator), recently did a study on which U.S. cities have the highest number of entry-level job openings. They featured industries such as sales, marketing and advertising, medical, business and finance, and management/other positions.
They also looked at the best cities for tech and engineering jobs, even breaking them down into subcategories:
- Software engineer
- Systems engineer
- QA engineer
It’s no surprise that San Francisco area has the highest number of entry-level positions for a software engineer. But did you know that if you live in Boston/Cambridge/Quincy, MA or Pittsburgh, PA that there are plenty of job opportunities as well?
Pittsburgh and Boston are also a great cities if you’re looking for a systems engineer position, as well as the Washington D.C. area.
Looking to become a technician? Well Pittsburgh again ranks high on the list, but don’t pack up and move just yet. If you live near Baltimore or Orlando, there are also many job opportunities at the entry-level position.
Now, we go back to California for QA engineer jobs, but it’s not San Francisco this time. Los Angeles has many opportunities, just not as many as Boston according to this study.
If you don’t happen to live in or near any of these fine cities, that’s ok. We here at Maxsys Solutions are dedicated to finding the right job for IT professionals in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Contact one of our team members or check our list of current jobs.
