Where the startup jobs are hiding: in plain sight

Now Hiring Exit Here

In 2011, the boom of startups following in the footsteps of an economy showing signs of recovery filled the pages of craigslist looking for talent. While other sectors were still struggling with unemployment, the tech startup world was competing for top people.

Now, with the economy looking even better (despite bad gas prices) and tech-related professions showing a demand above the rest of the field, there’s a sense amongst the potential employees that they have choices. Many are willing to move to the places where opportunities exist. While California still has a stranglehold on tech, there are other areas in the country that are booming as well.
