Virginia Ranks #4 for Tech Jobs

Published June 9, 2021

The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) is a leading voice and advocate for the $5 trillion global information technology ecosystem. Their recent CompTIA’s Tech Jobs Report listed Virginia as #4 for tech jobs, no doubt in part due to Arlington’s continued rise in tech positions available.

As stated on their website, “CompTIA’s report coincides with the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Employment Situation monthly labor market release. In addition to the headline jobs figures, CompTIA provides context through historical trending and supplementary data analysis, such as employer hiring activity at the state and metro area level, as well as insight into emerging technology job roles and skills.”

One of the graphs shows the top states for tech job postings, with Virginia ranked #4 for May:

It’s no secret that Arlington is booming with tech jobs, and The Shooshan Company is proud to be a part of Virginia and all it has to offer! More information and the full report can be found at
