Where Are The Jobs

Where are those telemarketers calling from? Well, Florida has the most – 26,420 in all!

Did you know that chiropractors make, on average, $164,980 in Alaska, the most of any state?

Open data provided by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics and U.S. Census Bureau is the fuel behind where-are-the-jobs.com, an online app sharing insights on employment trends and salary information. Did you know that California employs 33,100 firefighters, the most of any state?

SymSoft Solutions, developer of where-are-the-jobs.com, has labeled the app a “graphic representation of occupation employment statistics.” Data visualization has become increasingly important for companies and governments exploring methods to communicate open data with the general public. According to Thomas Powell, CEO of ZingChart, “It is faster to recognize a result than to read a paragraph. When done well, visualizations explain complex ideas simply. Oftentimes charts tell the story much faster than a prose description or a table presentation.”
