Alpharetta Jobs – August 2011

Around the middle of each month the career websites of Alpharetta’s largest employers are queried. The number of jobs advertised are tallied and trended month-to-month. The results are published to the Roots in Alpharetta blog and used by permission in the Appen Newspapers. This month’s numbers were tabulated on August 15th. All attempts were made to maintain accuracy but some errors are possible.

Overall numbers are flat compares to this time in July. Siemens tops the list with over 100 jobs posted to their career site. On the flip side, HP has reduced their openings to 26. This is down from over 100 at the end of last year. Alpharetta employers adding openings this month include Phillips, Equifax and AT&T.

This month saw the opening of a small business incubator. The Alpharetta Accelerator will give entrepreneurs a jump start, providing office space and access to capital. Perhaps today’s fledgling tech start-up will one day join the Fortune 500 companies on this list!
