Whether on HBO’s hit series or on the daily news, you have likely heard that Silicon Valley has the highest concentration of IT workers in the country. However, that isn’t the only tech hub in the United States.
Hi, and welcome to the APN video blog!
A recent study from CompTIA found that the top 25 states for IT occupations account for 88 percent of America’s 4.88 million IT jobs.
Here are the five states with the most IT professionals:
At No. 1 is California, unsurprisingly.
Coming in at No. 2, we have Texas, which experienced a 4 percent increase in available IT jobs in 2014.
Third is New York, a state with a variety of technology institutes.
Virginia is fourth on the list, home to the Dulles Technology Corridor, an area with regional offices for IBM, HP, Microsoft, Cisco and many more tech leaders.
No. 5 is Florida, another state with a job growth rate of around 4 percent in 2014.
