San Diego Leads Nation In Jobs
The Conference Board is reporting that San Diego tops the nation in new, first-time jobs being offered on major online job boards. According to the Conference Board, a nonprofit research center, San Diego had 3.43 new online jobs posted in April for every 100 people in the labor force. San Diego was ranked ahead of San Francisco, which had 3.34 new online jobs offerings, Boston, with 3.29, Seattle-Tacoma with 3.28, and Denver with 3.24. The Conference Board said that online job ads were up fifty percent over last year in San Diego. The surge in job postings for San Diego came in contrast to an overall, nationwide drop in new online job ads compared with the previous month.
