I found a pretty interesting article I wanted to share on Indeed.com. It talks about which cities have the most job openings per “unemployed” worker. Not sure there are any massive insights to be drawn from this but it got me thinking about one thing in particular.....
you are interviewing for a job or looking for a new job....you’ve got
to really understand the market. Check out the article, but think about
you’re looking for a job in Miami, there are 5 people looking for a job
for every posting....pretty tight competition. Honestly, from an
employer standpoint it’s a buyers market. Meanwhile, your’e looking in
San Jose and there is an opening for every person looking for a job
right now.....WOW, talk about opportunity right?
are a bunch of implications for this too right? If you are in Miami
and get a job offer....you probably should think long and hard about
declining the offer. There are just not that many opportunities out
there and everyone is interviewing for those few roles. In San
Jose....different story. Take your time and find the right gig. If you
don’t like an offer, the market is stong enough for you to be picky.
pasted the link below so check it out, and remember not all job markets
are created equally...and your job search can’t be created equally
