Jul 07, 2017 /prREACH/ -- EmployMarket, in beta since earlier this year, has now officially launched, providing job seekers with detailed information for metro areas across the US.
The website, at EmployMarket.com, allows visitors to browse employment statistics and earnings information for hundreds of occupations in over 300 US metro areas. EmployMarket is free to use, and does not require registration or submission of any personal information.
Hector Jones, one of the founders and co-creators of EmployMarket, describes the site as “a resource for those in any stage of their job search, whether they’re just starting out and considering where geographically to pursue that next opportunity, or if they’re expecting a job offer and are preparing for salary negotiations. College students nearing graduation will also find EmployMarket useful as it shows hard numbers on what kind of jobs are available where, and what kind of earnings expectations they should have.”
EmployMarket also includes several years of high-level job market statistics such as employment growth, earnings growth, and the unemployment rate for each metro area covered by the site (the national averages are also shown for comparison). Over 800 occupations are grouped into 21 occupational groups for ease of navigation. For each occupation or job title, a detail page shows the top metro areas by two separate rankings: concentration and earnings. Further, these rankings are shown for large metro areas (with populations over 1 million), mid-size metro areas (populations of 500,000 to 1 million), and small metro areas (populations of 200,000 to 500,000).
Asked to demonstrate some of the site’s functionality, Hector Jones gave this example: “Most of us can probably guess which are the top five large metro areas for web designers, starting with San Jose and San Francisco. But where are the top five mid-size metro areas for web designers?” After a few clicks on EmployMarket, he answered with “By concentration, the top five are: Provo-Orem, Utah; Madison, Wisconsin; Boise, Idaho; Durham, North Carolina; Des Moines, Iowa.
