Technology Jobs Continue to Rise in Atlanta

Posted by

Douglas Sams of the Atlanta Business Chronicle reports that Atlanta added 31,960 technology jobs over the past five years, as it continues to grow as a tech hub. The numbers come from CBRE Group Inc.’s latest report which ranks Atlanta as the nine-largest city in North America to attract tech talent.

The reasons why:

  • Housing affordability compared to wages.
  • An educated workforce, with over 53% of the population having a BA or higher.
  • A growing millennial population.

What follows employment? Home purchases, which is why millennials are a driving force in our current housing shortage.
