Many people throughout the country are searching for work as unemployment rates continue to soar. However, those looking for a Boston job may take comfort in knowing the city has many top companies that are often hiring.
The Boston area is one of the few that has added jobs during recent months and been able to keep a steady unemployment rate. During March, the Boston-Cambridge-Quincy area had an unemployment rate of 7.4 percent, the same as during February.
The area had a total non-farm employment of 2,413,100 workers during March, according to the United States Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics. This is up from 2,409,500 workers during February, but a 2.5 percent decrease from last year.
