Five of the Best Places to Pursue an IT Career
Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina
We already know Raleigh-Durham is a great place to get an education (check out our campus in the Triangle), but Glassdoor says it’s one of the top places to secure an IT job, as well. The area is growing quickly and job openings are growing with it. Look here for plenty of open job titles like software engineer and solutions architect.
Austin, Texas, is a top choice for tech careers, making us even prouder to have three campuses in the great state of Texas. Austin is considered a mid-sized city for IT professionals. Cost of living is low and job satisfaction is high. If you aren’t afraid of the heat, head south to Austin and see what it’s all about. Austin companies are seeking solutions architects, data scientists, and business systems analysts.
If you’re leaning towards New England while on the job hunt, look no further than Boston, Massachusetts. The cost of living is high, but not quite as high as San Francisco or New York City. There are plenty of job openings in this Northern city, and the hottest job offerings are applications developer, solutions architect, and data scientist.
San Francisco, California
According to Glassdoor’s list based on hiring opportunities, job satisfaction and work-life balance, San Francisco, California, is a great place to wind up. There are opportunities whether you’re trying to break into the tech world or are a seasoned IT professional. Some of the most available IT positions in San Fransisco include data scientists, solutions architects and engagement managers.
If you’re hoping to settle towards the Pacific but don’t want to deal with San Francisco’s incredible cost of living, try tech-forward Seattle, Washington.The most in-demand jobs in Seattle are solutions architects UI-UX designers and data scientists.
