According to a new annual survey by Glassdoor, the San Jose Metro came in #1 in the country for job opportunities! San Jose has a total of 51,439 job openings and a median base salary of $99,000. The best part is that wasn't the only job related statistic we scored high in. We ranked #2 when it comes to job satisfaction.
After aggregating all of the metrics, our overall job ranking was #7 out of the largest 50 metros in the US. We were brought down by having the 5th lowest cost of living in the survey. My question is which are the metros with a higher cost of living? I'm surprised we weren't at the very bottom of the list.
While the cost of living is high, the sheer number of opportunities, high salaries, amazing weather, and great people more than make up for it.
