The Coolest Companies In NYC Hiring Right Now
“In New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of — there’s nothing you can’t do. Now you’re in New York, these streets will make you feel brand new, the lights will inspire you.”
Jay-Z and Alicia Keys were right when they penned those lyrics for their hit song “Empire State of Mind”. There’s no city quite like New York. Uptown to Downtown, Brooklyn to the Bronx, Staten Island to Queens, the boroughs are filled with hard working people chasing their dreams.
That includes chasing dream jobs. With about 250,000 open jobs and a median pay of $60,322, the Big Apple pays big bucks and is home to some of the biggest companies in the country. Several of Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work winners are hiring in NYC and across the Hudson River in NJ.
