Michigan

Michigan has been on a comeback of late, with concerted efforts to bring in high-tech companies and increase tech employment. Clearly it's working, as Michigan increased tech jobs by 2.72 percent since year end.

According to a recent Dice.com report, the second quarter of 2014 continued to show strong employment numbers for IT professionals. The unemployment rate averaged 3 percent compared to the 3.6 percent unemployment rate registered last year during the same period.

Tech consulting has been adding jobs at a swift clip, creating 27,000 new positions in the second quarter, which is the best quarter for job gains since fourth quarter 2010 and ahead of last year's second quarter by 8,300 jobs.

Where are these jobs being creating? It might surprise you to know that many of the jobs are appearing in the South and Southeastern U.S.

This year's fastest growing state for technology jobs is built on two pillars: the highest percentage growth and the most new positions added in the first half of the year. In fact, this state has created so many new jobs, it now ranks as having the second largest workforce of technology professionals behind California, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics covering computer systems design and related services. Let's do the two-step for Texas.

In this slideshow, we'll take a closer look at Texas and the other nine fastest growing tech job markets.
