Where the Jobs Are
According to the experts and the surveys, most companies hiring for new media content creation positions are headquartered in New York and San Francisco. In fact bragging rights are at stake with a heated rivalry developing between the two regions.
Astudy conducted by Coopers & Lybrand found that companies making sites on the Internet's World Wide Web as well as multimedia software, computer games and other new media products employed 71,500 workers in 4,200 companies in the metropolitan New York region. These figures did not bode well with the West Coast. Using a different methodology and definition of new media technologies, a Bay Area Multimedia Partnership study of new media employment in the San Francisco area found that 2,200 Bay-area new media companies employed some 62,000 workers in 1995.
