Hot Cities for IT Talent

Modis, an information technology staffing firm, recently announced hot cities for IT in 2013. These cities were selected based on job availability and industry trends. We looked at their top 5 cities and listed the most in-demand IT job titles in each location. We expected to see Silicon Valley (San Francisco) and Silicon Alley (New York) among the "hot" cities; however, some of the mid-west locations surprised us.
