Beyond Silicon Valley: Where the tech jobs are

May. 24, 2018

It’s no secret that future is tech. In fact, the United States is the largest tech market in the world, representing 31 percent of the total, or approximately $1.5 trillion for 2018, according to CompTIA’s IT Industry Outlook 2018.

As you can see by this graphic representation of the data, there are many locations with technical job availability throughout the country. Big cities like Atlanta and New York City may not be a shock, but others like Dayton, Ohio, or Eden Prairie, Minnesota, likely weren’t top of mind. Just an hour south of Silicon Valley is another top market for tech jobs in El Segundo, but don’t move too much further south, as San Diego is one of the worst cities for tech jobs, according to the research. Other locations that are not good for tech jobs include Dallas, Texas, and Orlando, Florida.
