Employers in Washington, D.C., Boston, San Diego and Seattle lead the country
in terms of the number of employment ads they post on Internet job boards, according to a ranking
by Corzen, a provider of research and data for tracking market conditions.
For the past 10 months, Corzen has tracked the number of jobs posted on the
major competitors for recruitment advertising online: CareerBuilder, Monster,
HotJobs and local newspapers not affiliated with CareerBuilder. The company
based the rankings on total jobs posted on these four sites, weighted by total
households in the metropolitan area.
Washington, D.C., was the clear leader in online job postings per household,
averaging more than 40,000 weekly online job postings over a four-week period
from August 24 to September 14. Those 40,000 online help-wanted ads translate
into slightly more than 18 job postings per 1,000 households in the metro area.
Both Boston and San Diego had approximately 10 online job postings per 1,000
households each of the past four weeks. Other markets with a high online job
posting per household included Los Angeles and Philadelphia.
The company measured the lowest number of job-board postings in San Antonio,
Albuquerque, Greenville, S.C. and Charlotte, N.C.
