The Fastest 11

It is no secret that the Great Recession has taken its toll on every city in the nation. Some cities though have healed faster than others. In fact, there are some cities in the United States that are growing faster than everywhere else. These top eleven cities also have one other very appealing quality: plentiful jobs! WANTED Analytics brings us this look at these cities by way of Forbes.

Texas continues to reign on the best lists. Although, it’s not first place among the fastest growing cities, cities in Texas appear in 5 out of 11 spots listed above. Houston and Dallas were among the Cities with the Most Demand. As we previously covered, Texas also dominated Forbes’ list of the Best Cities for Good Jobs. In these 11 cities combined, there were about 212,700 job ads posted online. In June, each location experienced an increase in demand when compared to the same time last year. The largest growth in job volume occurred in Austin (TX), up 36% since last year. If people are moving to these cities for jobs, just what jobs are so plentiful? Below are the occupations that were most in-demand.

Manufacturing in Red, White, and Blue.

The United States in recent years has been falling behind in the manufacturing sector. Companies have been sending their manufacturing and production to cheaper overseas factories. Lately though, the manufacturing sector in the United States has been making a bit of a comeback and is seemingly been growing ever so slightly. WANTED Analytics brings us this look into hiring demand in the manufacturing sector.

 

 

Hiring Demand in the Manufacturing Sector

Within the manufacturing sector, the 10 industries with the most job ads were:

 

  1. Pharmaceutical Preparation Manufacturing
  2. Semiconductor and Related Device Manufacturing
  3. Search, Detection, Navigation, Guidance, Aeronautical, and Nautical System and Instrument Manufacturing
  4. Radio and Television Broadcasting and Wireless Communications Equipment Manufacturing
  5. Surgical and Medical Instrument Manufacturing
  6. All Other Plastics Product Manufacturing
  7. Surgical Appliance and Supplies Manufacturing
  8. Electronic Computer Manufacturing
  9. Aircraft Manufacturing
  10. Soft Drink Manufacturing

Industrial Engineers are the most in-demand occupation in the manufacturing sector. In June, there were more than 19,000 jobs available for this position in the US. First-line Supervisors of Production Workers, Marketing Managers, Applications Software Developers, and Sales Representatives (Wholesale and Manufacturing) filled out the top 5 manufacturing occupations.

On average, jobs in the manufacturing sector remain online for 49 days – or about 7 weeks. This doesn’t necessarily mean that employers will fill jobs in 7 weeks, but that they will need to keep ads online for this period of time to collect applications and prepare for interviews. The actual time-to-fill is likely to take even longer. Since this is a long time to recruit potential candidates, we wanted to look at some of the places with shorter posting periods and score the lowest on our Hiring Scale to help Recruiters and Hiring Managers recruit faster.

 

One of the best places to source for talent in the US is the Brownsville metro area. This area scores a 24 on our Hiring Scale, significantly lower than the national average of 49. Brownsville is also experiencing the shortest average posting period at 31 days. This is about 2.5 weeks shorter than the national average. Recruiters that are able to source candidates from this region are likely to see less competition from other employers and have a larger pool of candidates to source from, which will all lead to filling jobs easier and faster.

S.T.E.M.

STEM is the acronym for Science Technology Engineering and Math. The idea of STEM, and STEM jobs have been at the forefront of the national debate over job creation and education  lately. There have been major campaigns by the government and other organizations to focus public education on STEM so that when students enter the workforce after college, they are better prepared to compete in a competitive workforce at home and abroad. STEM jobs are in high demand, and as WANTED Analytics shows us there are positions available if you have the qualifications.

 

 

Within STEM are the computer and mathematical, architecture and engineering, and life and physical science occupations. In May, there were approximately 1.1 million job ads for STEM careers advertised online, a 4% year-over-year increase in demand. Computer and mathematical occupations were the most in-demand with 840,000 jobs. There were 265,000 jobs available for architects and engineers, and about 85,000 for science positions. Below are the most commonly advertised job titles in each area.

War of Silicon? Silicon Alley vs. Silicon Valley

No longer are high paying technical professions the exclusive domain of Silicon Valley. In fact, may new and exciting start ups are coming out of Silicon Alley. WANTED Analytics brings us this insightful article about the hiring demand and the increasing battles between Silicon Valley and Silicon Alley for tech talent.

 

 

Hiring demand for tech positions continues to grow across much of the US and there has been increasing competition between the Silicon Valley and New York’s Silicon Alley. Today, we wanted to take an updated look at the types of tech jobs being recruited in each of these locations and overall hiring conditions. Between these 2 areas, there were 116,000 tech jobs being advertised online in April. Both NY and the combined San Francisco/San Jose metro areas accounted for similar volume. However, for the first time in the past 4 years, hiring demand in New York surpassed what was seen in the Silicon Valley. There were about 58,600 ads in New York in April, and 58,000 in the Valley.

Below are the 10 most commonly advertised tech job titles in New York City and theSilicon Valley. There are many similarities between the 2 lists. 7 job titles are the same: Project Manager, Java Developer, Senior Java Developer, Software Engineer, Web Developer, Business Analyst, and Network Engineer. However, job titles that are specifically software engineering related appear on higher on the list for the Silicon Valley than they do in NY.

On average in the US, tech jobs score a 77 on our Hiring Scale, meaning that they will behard-to-fill jobs. (The Hiring Scale ranges from 1-99, with 99 representing the most difficult-to-fill conditions.) Both New York and the Silicon Valley score higher than the national average. New York scores a 79, while the combined San Francisco and San Jose metros score an 82. It is likely to be more difficult to fill tech jobs in the Silicon Valley.

Candidate Shortage? Mathematical & Computer Oriented Occupations

We’ve been commenting for a while that technically oriented profiles have a better chance in the current and future job market. There has also been a continuing theme for younger job seekers and students to concentrate on STEM course and educational paths. Here’s some validation brought to you by Wanted Analytics:

 

A recent study by the Economic Policy Institute found that the US has more than a sufficient talent supply to work in STEM occupations. They particularly referred to computer and information science and engineering jobs, saying that US colleges graduate 50% more students than are hired into those fields each year. We reviewed current demand and candidate supply to see what national hiring trends reveal about computer and mathematical occupations.

 

Over the past 30 days, there were about 844,800 job ads listed online for computer and mathematical occupations. When comparing this 30-day period to the same 30-day period last year, demand rose 6%. Currently, there are about 4,412,000 qualified candidates in the workforce, meaning there are about 5 people for every job ad.

 

Over the past couple years, New York (NY) led hiring demand. At times, Washington (DC) switched places with New York for the highest volume of job ads. The last time Washington (DC) had the most demand was in December 2012. During the last 30 days, New York continued to have the highest number of job ads for computer and mathematical occupations. San Francisco (CA), Los Angeles (CA), and Seattle (WA) rounded out the list of top 5 cities with the highest demand for this talent.

Recruiters sourcing for these occupations are likely to encounter difficult conditions throughout the US. Computer and mathematical occupations score a 77 on our Hiring Scale (out of a possible 99, with 99 indicating hard-to-fill.) Of the cities with the highest number of job ads posted online, San Jose (CA) is likely to have the least difficult recruiting conditions. Although conditions in the San Jose area may be less difficult than some others, Recruiters in this area are still likely to experience challenging conditions, with a score of 78. Nearby city, San Francisco, is among the areas with the most difficult recruiting conditions, scoring an 85. In these 2 cities that make up the Silicon Valley, there are about 8 candidates for every job ad. Recruiters in these areas may want to relocate talent from the Visalia-Porterville (CA) metro area which scores a 31 on our Hiring Scale. This location offers the best conditions in a close proximity to the Silicon Valley and it has the best conditions nationwide. Visalia’s current talent supply can support the local demand with about 66 candidates for every job ad listed. Below are snapshots of hiring demand in San Francisco (CA), San Jose (CA), and Visalia (CA).

Hello HR? Got Data?

WANTED Analytics brings us a great article about the need for analytical skills in the HR field.

 

“Big data” is a hot topic and is reaching all aspects of a business – including in human resources. We wanted to see how many HR jobs ads require experience in data analytics. As it turns out, this is a fast-growing skill requirement for the HR field. In the past 60 days, there have been about 1,800 jobs advertised online that specify candidates should have good analytical skills. This is a 10% increase compared to the same 60-day period in 2012.

In addition, data analysis is commonly required at all levels and in all aspects of HR. Below are the 10 HR job titles that commonly require analytical skills. Job titles that are related to recruiting and general HR most commonly appear on this list. 5 are general HR, 4 are recruiting, and 1 is compensation related.  Also, there are a variety of experience, including interns, assistants, and specialist.

 

 

  1. Recruiter
  2. Human Resources Assistant
  3. Human Resources Coordinator
  4. Client Recruitment Specialist
  5. Compensation Analyst
  6. Recruiting Coordinator
  7. Human Resources Intern
  8. Acquisitions Specialist
  9. Human Resources Representative
  10. Senior Recruiter

These jobs are likely to be slightly harder than HR jobs that don’t require strong analytical skills. The average HR job scores a 59 on our Hiring Scale (ranging from 1 to 99, with 99 being the hardest-to-fill conditions.) HR jobs with data analysis requirements score a 62 on the Hiring Scale. So, these jobs will be moderately difficult for employers to fill. Some of the best locations for sourcing this talent are currently Riverside (CA), Pittsburgh (PA), and Sacramento (CA).
