$100,000 jobs not so easy to find in Tampa
When it comes to hot markets for jobs paying more than $100,000, Tampa Bay is positively chilly. So says TheLadders.com, an online service that tracks hiring patterns in 20 major cities. The hottest $100,000-plus job markets range from New York and San Francisco to Seattle and Chicago. Tampa and Detroit continue to be among the tightest markets in the 20 markets surveyed. For $100,000+ jobs, the survey says PriceWaterhouseCoopers, MetLife and JPMorgan Chase tend to post the most jobs in the pay range. And which companies do those surveyed most want to work for in the area? Ceridian, L-3 Communications and Wachovia. For every job paying $100,000 or more here, there are on average eight candidates.
