If you work with clients relocating to The Lone Star State, or want to, Houston is a good place for digital creatives, developers and marketers to find work. Onward Search, a Connecticut-based recruitment and staffing firm for just those types of folks conducted year-end research on the most in-demand creative callings. They tallied their placement data for the markets that they serve, and came up with information about how easy it is to find work in 50 job categories. Their team crunched the numbers to find the top 20 markets for the careers in which they place those 50 types of talent. The organization places clients in jobs from nine U.S. offices, and one in the UK. New York City dominated the rankings for the top market for many types of jobs. But, many other cities have a strong creative class ready and able to take on digital and marketing tasks. In general, Houston held strong about the middle part of the list, but did come out with a few categories that land...
- Houston is a good place for digital creatives, developers and marketers to find work.
- Digital marketers, such as community and traffic managers, rank high for opportunity.
- Even a last-place ranking in Houston offers jobs that pay up to $116,000 a year.
