  • California has the highest level of employment, highest wages, and the largest concentration for these jobs. In five years the state added over 10,000 new jobs, which is 45% growth.
  • New York added over 5,000 jobs in that same time period, which was 90% growth for the industry in the state.
  • Washington and Massachusetts, also with higher levels of employment, grew by 57% and 71%, respectively.
  • Many other states are also experiencing good growth, but the current employment levels are currently much smaller. Forty out of 50 states (and D.C.) experienced growth from ’07-11.

The top occupations employed by internet publishers:

  • Computer software engineers, systems software and computer software engineers, applications are the most common occupations. Software engineers comprise 10.5% of the internet publishing industry. Both of these jobs pay well and require bachelor’s degrees.
  • Sales and customer service representatives comprise another 9% of the total industry. These jobs typically require on-the-job training and prior experience.
  • Seven of the 11 jobs on this list require a bachelor’s degree.
  • Five of the 11 are related to computer and science

 

Sadly even the US has pretty old data about this industry.In the intervening 7 years,the industry and the internet have evolved so much.

And the sheer invisibility in official statistics and lack of care from the government in India means a huge opportunity is being lost even as the government focuses on backing Amazon and WhatsApp wannabes.
