CNNMoney.com with Pay differences: Same job, 10 different cities and Where the (best) 6-figure jobs are. This is very interesting to me following my trip to San Francisco. Although I had not been there before I had done quite a bit of recruiting there from 2002-2004.
I know the statistics about the cost of living adjustment from Minneapolis to the Bay Area but now having experienced it, oh my. Of course the thing that shocked me the most was the price of housing but that’s a post for another day.
Definitely worth reading if you are thinking of relocating or if like me you are recruiting in other parts of the country and candidates may be relocating.
Always looking for the local angle here it is:
We asked job listing sites 6FigureJobs.com and The Ladders.com to provide us with a snapshot of where they have had the greatest number of listings for six-figure jobs in the past two months.
Predictably, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. were in the top 10. But there were also a relatively high number of such jobs in Chicago, Atlanta, Seattle, Cleveland, Denver, Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Houston, Dallas, Minneapolis and Charlotte, NC.
It should not shock anyone that I still believe that when you compare the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul with other areas of the country that this is one of the best places to be.
Cold weather included.
