Last week, we covered jobs that weren't tech related in the Silicon Valley. Our Hiring Scale showed that, of the 10 most in-demand jobs outside of IT related positions, Marketing Managers are likely to be the hardest to fill. The San Francisco metro area scored a 94 on our Hiring Scale and the San Jose area scored a 90. A score of 99 would depict the hardest-to-fill situation. With these 2 cities coming pretty close to a 99, we thought it would be helpful to look at some places West Coast Recruiters may have better luck looking for marketing talent.

Of course, recruiting from these more eastern locations might require relocating a new employee. We understand that this isn't always feasible for all jobs. While this is something that Recruiters and hiring managers should discuss as a part of their strategy for finding the best possible candidates in the shortest possible time, you may need local areas to source from. So, we also wanted to provide you with some nearby locations where conditions may be more favorable for recruiting Marketers.
Here are the 5 metro areas within 200 miles of the Silicon Valley with the best conditions for sourcing marketing professionals:
