Perhaps, you guessed who’s got position #1, but how about the rest?
StartUp Hire created this basic but nifty infographic detailing the best states for getting a gig at a startup, along with some of the most common job types you’ll find there.
Since they’re a job board solely devoted to posting positions at startups, you can imagine they have a heck of a lot of data to draw from - and some of it might surprise you.
The numbers show that you don’t necessarily have to move to California to get one of those jobs, though with a full 36% of of all jobs posted on the site, the Sunshine State The Golden State might be your best bet if you’re determined to work in a startup environment.
Here are the rankings and the percentages of jobs posted:
1. California (36%)
2. Massachusetts (7%)
3. New York (7%)
4. Texas (5%)
5. Washington (4%)
6. Colorado (3%)
7. Pennsylvania (3%)
And there’s good news: StartUp Hire’s job posts increased 24% over last year.
More good news - Vitamin T has offices in all of those states (well, except Colorado... we’re working on it!) And with our focus on agencies and fast-growing companies, we might just have that startup job you’re looking for!
Technical skills are important to have, but it's the soft skills that can set you apart from the pack.
