The Cities Creating The Most Tech Jobs 2017
A growing tech industry is often considered the ultimate sign of a healthy local economy. By that measure, the Bay Area still stands at the top of the heap in the United States, but our survey of the metropolitan areas with the strongest tech job growth turns up some surprising places not usually thought of as tech meccas. Other familiar faces make the top 10: No. 3 Austin, No. 6 Raleigh-Durham, No. 8 Seattle and No. 10 Denver. These lower-cost alternatives to the Bay Area have all been attracting people and companies from pricier California. Yet these areas too face rising housing prices, which is a challenge particularly for workers entering their early 30s and looking to settle down. Forbes

I Really Want the Job: Don’t Just Tell Your Interviewer, SHOW Them
This may seem like a question with an astoundingly obvious answer; no one will hire someone who doesn’t want the job. However, candidates don’t always put this across as explicitly as they should. Employers are passionate about their business and workplace. They want to see that you’re just as excited at the prospect of becoming part of the team as they are about working there. Therefore, this is what you need to demonstrate during your interview. Career Experts
