New York, Silicon Valley Lead Nation for Tech Jobs: Dice
While the United States is still struggling to rein in elevated unemployment rates, the tech sector is faring far better than the rest of the economy, as numbers released by IT hiring specialist Dice suggest. In the company’s January report, there were 77,052 available technology jobs listed, including 47,742 full-time positions, 32,677 contract positions and 1,702 part-time jobs. The report also noted 526 telecommuting positions were available. The Dice report also provides a list of the top 10 metro areas for tech jobs, with New York City taking the No. 1 position as it continues its rise as a major rival to Silicon Valley. However, the report also noted a single job posting may reflect more than one skill, location or type of position, and therefore total figures for those attributes may be greater than the total number of jobs posted.
