From north to south, California has more to offer tech professionals than just Silicon Valley. In Sacramento, firms in healthcare and technology are hiring (+37 percent yr/yr) and tech paychecks have jumped six percent yr/yr to $87,000 on average.

Revived or suppressed. Fits and starts. Urgent or measured. These are terms that have described the tech job market since the beginning of 2010. Today, after two years of continuous improvement in recruitment activity on Dice, tech is a market-by-market story.

There are certainly many available tech jobs in traditional centers like Silicon Valley, New York or Seattle. But, other cities continue to join the party creating interesting opportunities for tech professionals in other regions.

It's important for tech professionals to remember with growing opportunities comes expanding options — if you're willing to be flexible about where you live. Consider going for that promotion, asking for a raise or changing it up and finding that new opportunity.
