Super Bowl of Hiring: New York vs. Boston? And the Winner is?

Wanted Analytics tells us the correlation between the big game cities and their respective hiring:  We recently came across an article that compared the jobless rate for the city of each team that competed in the Super Bowl over the last 20 years.  They found that the lower jobless rate predicted the Super Bowl winner in 17 out of the past 20 years.  So, we thought we’d put our own spin on this and talk about Hiring Demand in the two cities that are home to our Super Bowl teams.

 

In the New York metro area, we have seen just over 200,000 new job ads posted  in the past 90 days.  This is a 7.4% increase versus the same time period last year.
