A few weeks ago, we wrote about recent acknowledgment of Detroit as a city of innovation, with the U.S. Government with plans to open a satellite Patent Office. Just over a month later, Dice.com, a leading career website for technology and engineering professionals, reports Detroit is the fastest growing metro area for technology jobs.
If that isn’t a reassurance of Detroit’s future and our city’s residents to persevere and evolve, we’re not sure what is. And while the automotive industry will forever be a part of our DNA, tech opportunities today have expanded widely to virtually every industry – including healthcare, financial, retail and telecommunications. All of this means opportunity in southeast Michigan.
More than 800 jobs are available on any given day, a 101% increase over 2010. And with an average annual salary of more than $71,000 (a 2% raise over last year), the city offers plenty for tech job seekers to be excited about.
