RALEIGH – High-tech jobs keep growing in Raleigh, salaries average nearly $94,000 and the cost of living locally is 4% less than the national leverage: Add those facts together and the end result in North Carolina’s capital ranks as the No. 3 “Tech Town” in the US.
So says tech trade group CompTIA in its annual survey.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Raleigh remains a hot spot for tech-relaced jobs with more than 44,000 postings between August 2019 and July 2020, the study says.
In a bit of bad news, however, Raleigh dropped one spot from a year ago with Dallas-Fort Worth climbing to second from seventh in 2019.
And Raleigh’s tech rival – Austin, Texas – topped the list for the second straight time.
