CHARTS: How's the Job Market in Charlestown?
If you're looking for a job in Boston, there's a high likelihood it will have something to do with Beacon Hill—and don't look online for jobs in the North End.
Indeed, the firm that powers our jobs board, found more than 24,000 jobs posted within a short distance of Downtown Boston (specifically, the 02116 zip code). Within those, we performed a search for mentions of each of the Boston neighborhood served by Patch.
Beacon Hill far outperformed all others, boasting nearly twice as many job postings as the next-most mentioned neighborhood. It also had nearly triple the number of jobs posted per thousand residents in the neighborhood.
Charlestown came in a middling fourth as far as the raw number of jobs posted, but a strong third when population was taken into account.
The North End underperformed, with just 16 jobs posted online. But, given the North End's primary industries, some of the neighborhood's open jobs might get filled without advertising online.
