10 great job markets for techies
The New York area, Washington, D.C., and Silicon Valley each have thousands of tech openings, according to a leading job board. For those with the hottest skills, pay is setting post-bubble records.


By Anne Fisher, Fortune senior writer

(Fortune) -- No question about it, technology careers suffer from an image problem. A study by Dice.com (www.dice.com), a leading job board that's exclusively for techies, says that 94% of tech professionals are happy in their work, and 88% would recommend a tech career to others. They're far more concerned with issues like keeping their skills up-to-date (82%) than with outsourcing (41%) or layoffs (37%). Yet, the study says, "those outside the industry don't see technology as appealing when compared to other industries."

...

So many frustrated job seekers moved on to other careers that "we're facing a dearth of software engineers and developers with 2 to 8 years' experience," Welch says.

...

Dice.com's list of the top 10 metropolitan areas for tech jobs:

1. New York/New Jersey - 11,044 postings
2. Washington, D.C. - 7,971 postings
3. Silicon Valley - 6,755 postings
4. Los Angeles - 4,546 postings
5. Chicago - 4,241 postings
6. Boston - 4,167 postings
7. Philadelphia - 3,156 postings
8. Dallas - 3,084 postings
9. Atlanta - 2,987 postings
10. Seattle - 2,309 postings

Hi Shipra,

tech unemployment is close to 2.4% which almost equivalent to being zero

Which IS equivalent to being zero, no need for "almost".

The usual "residual" percentange commonly admitted for stating there is no unemployment somewhere is 3%, so one may even say that with less than 2.5% which is clearly below there is a real labour shortage in this field.

Best regards.
