Ladders, a career advice and job search website, recently released a report on the areas recruiting for the most openings that pay $100,000 or more in August. To do so, analysts used information from its database. 

San Francisco was No. 1 on the list, with more than 30,000 positions available, and New York was No. 2, with more than 25,000.

Atlanta wasn’t too far behind at No. 8, overall. There are currently over 8,000 six-figure openings.

“Home to more than a dozen Fortune 500 companies there are so many jobs here the city has been dubbed an employee’s market, the researchers wrote.
