If you're looking for a job in Boston, there's a high likelihood it will have something to do with Beacon Hill—and you'll have a much tougher time looking online for jobs in the North End.
Indeed, the firm that powers our jobs board, found more than 24,000 jobs posted within a short distance of Downtown Boston (specifically, the 02116 zip code). Within those, we performed a search for mentions of each of the Boston neighborhood served by Patch.
Beacon Hill far outperformed all others, boasting nearly twice as many job postings as the next-most mentioned neighborhood. It also had nearly triple the number of jobs posted per thousand residents in the neighborhood.
The North End underperformed, with just 16 jobs posted online. But, given the North End's primary industries, some of the neighborhood's open jobs might get filled without advertising online.Neighborhood Job Mentions Population Jobs Per 1000 Back Bay 133 17,952 7.4 Beacon Hill 283 12,661 22.4 Charlestown 107 15,195 7.0 North End 16 9,637 1.7 South End 79 23,105 3.4 Jamaica Plain 144 38,176 3.8 West Roxbury 125 28,755 4.3 Fenway/Kenmore 97 29,316 3.3
