Miami Now The Top Growing ‘Talent Magnet’ In America, According To LinkedIn

A new analysis by LinkedIn shows that Miami is now the top growing metro in the U.S. where people are moving to.

The study looked at the number of LinkedIn members changing their profile location between November 2020 and October 2021, compared to the same period in the prior year.

Miami saw the highest growth, ranking above any city on the list of what LinkedIn calls “talent-magnet metros.”

Just fourteen months ago, the thought of Miami being a real player in attracting tech and finance talent seemed “laughable,” the website wrote. Now it is turning into reality in a big way.

Florida in general has become a talent and population magnet. Four out of the five top cities on LinkedIn’s list were in the state, including Jacksonville, Tampa, and Orlando.

The rise of Miami and Florida as a magnet for tech and finance companies has been “gleefully chronicled” by Bloomberg wealth reporters, the website wrote.

New announcements from finance companies and industry titans of plans to relocate here keep coming month after month, the report noted.

I can tell you from my own experience that the marketplace for finance professionals has expanded drastically and its extremely refreshing to have landed a dream job in the heart of Brickell for a top firm without being required to speak Spanish, which has been a huge hurdle for me for years.

There will never be a shortage of Miami haters This is because Miami is suddenly becoming a truly remarkable success story. Hating always has its roots in jealousy. If you are pro-Miami, start worrying if the hating stops because that will only happen if and when things get really bad in Miami.

It doesnt seem like you know how this works.

Miami is producing talent (whether you know this fact or not). I personally invest in education…is that what you mean?

Personally, I’ve invested over $100,000 in education in the last 3 years; not counting the property taxes I pay to the Miami-Dade Pubic schools.

Is that enough? Is everyone who talks/types/texts a big game about investing doing the same as me?
Sincere question.
Should I invest more?

I have never seen a human being eat in such a disgusting fashion. This guy takes a pancake and he’s shoving it in his mouth. It’s disgusting… Do you want that for your president? I don’t think so.”

Trump called Ted Cruz “Lyin’ Ted”

Trump repeatedly called Marco Rubio “Little Marco.”

Trump described Jeb Bush as a “low energy guy.”

Trump insulted Carly Fiorina looks.

Trump said Ben Carson has a “pathological temper.”

Trump insulted Rand Paul.

Funny enough, Miami votes Blue most of the time for State and National elections. But the mix locally with commissioners is mostly purple. Your Dem and Rep Commissioners and Mayors are going to be very different from their equivalents in those other also Blue cities. Vote based on policy, not party.

Newly-released data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) showed that inflation is skyrocketing at an even faster rate than predicted as it climbed to a nearly 40-year high.

BLS said in a statement, “The all items index rose 6.8 percent for the 12 months ending October, the largest 12-month increase since the period ending June 1982.”

Born and raised in Miami over sixty years ago. Miami always touted itself as a “tourist destination.” I can tell you more about the past and present of Miami. Currently, if Miami is going to keep that slogan as a tourist destination, it has and must do something that’s the complete opposite of Orlando, and that is have something to attract grownups with money and that will bolster mainland Miami’s attraction, tourism, and the economy.

This is not about being a Genting Shill.. It’s about finally doing something that should’ve been done a long time ago. Right now Miami is just, ho-hum.
