Recruiting Tech Talent in Nashville? Read This!

Dave Delaney

Nashville Technology Map I previously wrote a post showing how LinkedIn's Economic Graph revealed the top skills in Nashville professionals.

In August 2014, LinkedIn shared the top ten cities attracting LinkedIn members with technology talent. The results are:

  1. Bangalore, India
  2. Pune, India
  3. Hyderabad, India
  4. Chennai, India
  5. San Francisco Bay Area, United States
  6. Seattle, United States
  7. Austin, United States
  8. Melbourne, Australia
  9. Sydney, Australia
  10. Gurgaon, India

LinkedIn also found the top ten cities that attracted the smallest percentage of tech talent. Unfortunately, Nashville made the list as the third least popular city to attract technology talent. The full list is as follows:

  1. Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, United States
  2. Paris, France
  3. Nashville, United States
  4. Cleveland/Akron, United States
  5. Las Vegas, United States
  6. New Delhi, India
  7. Madrid, Spain
  8. St. Louis, United States
  9. Washington D.C. Metro, United States
  10. Mumbai, India

The good news is organizations like the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce, Nashville Technology Council and Nashville Entrepreneur Center are all doing excellent work promoting the great people and companies in Music City.

Remember, LinkedIn's findings were from August 2014. I would bet we are in much better shape this year. How do you think we are doing recruiting talent to Nashville? Please leave a comment with your thoughts.

At Futureforth our job is to make sure you are using LinkedIn effectively for your company. This is why we stay abreast of all of the latest tools LinkedIn has to offer, like the LinkedIn Economic Graph for example. I studied the graph and drilled down to find Nashville's top professional skills. Here are the eight most popular business categories of Nashville based professionals. Not surprisingly music and healthcare take the lead.

  1. Music Production
  2. Healthcare Management
  3. Theology
  4. Sales
  5. Marketing Event Management
  6. Insurance
  7. Social Media Marketing
  8. Microsoft Windows Systems
