Houston Top City for IT Jobs in 2012

February 13 2012

Houston is the top place to find an information technology job for the second year in a row, according to a list released today by Modis, an IT staffing firm. Toronto ranked as the second-best city.

Houston topped the list due mainly to growing demand for IT support in healthcare as well as oil and gas, two of the city’s main industries, according to Modis. Houston is also the fourth-largest city in the U.S. and has an unemployment rate below the national average, helping to attract new talent from other parts of the country. The skills most in demand in the metro area include network engineers, project managers, business analysts, and Java and .NET developers.

Toronto, which ranks No. 2, is the third-largest financial center in North America next to New York and Chicago.
