Alpharetta Jobs – March 2011

Approximately quarterly the career websites of Alpharetta’s largest employers are queried. The number of jobs advertised are tallied and trended against data going back over two years. The results are published to the Roots in Alpharetta blog and used by permission in the Appen Newspapers. These numbers were tabulated on March 26th and 27th. All attempts were made to maintain accuracy but some errors are possible.

I’ve run this column monthly for the past two years but am transitioning to a quarterly frequency.

The overall number of openings remains strong at over 700 advertised. 2011 saw strong hiring at HP and Siemens as they ramped up new projects in Alpharetta. The current number of openings at these two companies is down, possibly indicating that their staffing shortages are coming to an end.

Scientific Games in south Forsyth shows 41 openings, the most since I’ve tracked the company. Mega Millions is setting record payouts. Coincidence? Other companies showing an increase in job openings include software shops RedPrairie and Infor in Milton.
