Jobs per capita map at Indeed

Indeed.com, the nifty job search site I blogged about not long ago, has now supplemented their Jobgeist with a map of job openings per capita in major employment markets:

Austin looks pretty good, especially compared to the rest of the CST states. What surprises me is that major centers on the east and west coasts are such standouts, fiscal crises and the cost of living notwithstanding.

Now if Indeed just offered a way to correlate this with a ratio of salary to housing price, the job hunter trying to choose a geographical target would be all set. (Note to Rony at Indeed: I guess by now you’re familiar with the If You Give a Mouse a Cookie principle…)

  1. Hm. So there are 12.6 fast food places just dying to hire me here in Austin? I thought surely there were at least 22.4.

    What Christiane said. In Washington, DC the map doesn’t take into account the types of jobs available (like the big defense and homeland security job sector).

    I’d like to see a similar map parsing out the types of jobs.
