That impression needs to change. Pittsburgh employers and regional service organizations need to make it easy to find jobs and apply for them. In fact, and contrary to the popular image of Pittsburgh as a dying city, there are new jobs in Pittsburgh -- lots of new jobs. Good jobs. Westinghouse is hiring. Allegheny Technologies/Allegheny Ludlum is hiring. Kennametal is hiring. (Yes, I know that the company is located in Latrobe.) US Steel is hiring. And those are only the companies that I know about from face-to-face conversations. If your company is looking to hire, feel free to add a link in the Comments.
But Pittsblog comments are no way to run a region. There must be a better way to get this word out. There's work to do in Pittsburgh. (Feel free to adopt this as a slogan, if you like it.)
The Tech Council can only be part of a solution. Flipdog, now part of monster.com, has a Pittsburgh jobs board. And I only spent 15 minutes this morning looking around the web. Thoughts?
