Cincinnati jobs (a national comparison)

Of the 50 most populous regions of the US, Cincinnati has the 15th MOST jobs postings per capita. That is to say that finding a job in Cincinnati would be easier than finding one in places from Pittsburgh to Portland , San Diego to San Antonio, St. Louis to St. Paul, and New Orleans to New York.

The map below graphically displays how well Cincy is doing. In addition to Cincinnati having the 15th best standing nationwide, it also boasts the 2nd best standing in the Midwest region. As a result of its high ranking Cincinnati also ranks ahead of many of its peer cities that it is in direct competition with for job talent. Cities like Denver, Seattle, Charlotte, Baltimore and Milwaukee did all rank higher.

In the interactive version clicking on a city will bring up job postings, and drawing a box will zoom to that area. Not currently looking for a job? Then pass this link along to someone who might be.

Not to be a stick in the mud, but I think this means that finding a job posting is easier, not necessarily finding a job.

^ True, but only to a point. Finding job postings is easy; they are listed everywhere. What matters is the number and content of those postings. The ease of landing a job directly correlates to the skill set an individual has, of course. But in general, more openings per capita translates into more opportunities per capita. More job openings per capita means less competition per job, so ideally, it would be easier. True, though, that this post does not address the type of postings.

Totally unrelated, but I love your site.
