BOSTON AND NEW YORK SEE SURGE IN HIRING – SECOND QUARTER 2015 DIGITAL JOBS INDEX

Oct 26, 2015 | ON Blogs

NEW YORK ADDS 6.3% AND BOSTON ADDS 5.0% FOR Q2

ON Partners (www.onpartners.com), a leading retained executive search firm, has compiled the results of its quarterly East Coast Digital Jobs Index. After a very slow start to the year, both Boston and New York City made up for that with a large increase in hiring in the second quarter. Overall, New York has seen a healthy increase in hiring activity in the first half of 2015 versus the prior year while Boston’s hiring rate has slightly declined during the same comparison period.

ON Search Partners’ John Barrett observed: “This was the largest increase quarter-over-quarter that we have seen since our survey began in 2012. We expect to see a typical slowdown in summer hiring coming up, but overall hiring activity is very strong.”

New York’s Top 10 list of job creators includes for the first time Business Insider and Blue Apron. The Big Apple’s Up And Comers List for the first time includes Fanduel, Kargo, 1stdibs, venmo, SeatGeek, xAd, JW Player and Betterment.

Boston’s Top 10 list includes EverQuote for the first time while the city’s Up and Comers List includes newcomers peerTransfer, Curata and Jebbit.
