The Delaware Valley is Overflowing With Skilled Workers
While a number of cities nationwide are seeing a high influx of skilled workers relocating there for work, Philadelphia is at the bottom of the list with an overabundance of local talent, writes Glenn Leibowitz for Inc.com.
LinkedIn, the social media networking tool with over 133 million profiles of U.S. workers has started utilizing its data to create a report on employment trends in the U.S. workforce. This offers an insight into work related migration trends across the country.
According to the report, cities experiencing the highest migration over the last year include Seattle, Portland and Austin. These mobile workers are primarily coming from places such as San Francisco and New York City.
“Seattle, Portland, Austin, Denver, and Charlotte are all cities that have a lower cost of living than cities like New York and San Francisco, and have access to the great outdoors,” states the report.
On the opposite end of the spectrum are cities with an over-supply of skill, which is where Philadelphia is situated. The report emphasizes that people considering a move to the City of Brotherly Love need to closely examine the available job opportunities before making their decision.
