A new study finds that Silicon Valley's job growth has jumped to numbers not seen since the dot-come boom and San Francisco has become a new technology center.
The 2013 Silicon Valley Index, an annual study by the Joint Venture Silicon Valley and the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, reports that the Bay Area added 92,000 jobs and that Santa Clara and San Mateo counties had almost half of those jobs, the San Jose Mercury News reported. The 42,000 jobs are considered "prodigious" according to Russell Hancock, president of Joint Venture Silicon Valley.
"Employment growth in Silicon Valley is impressive, very impressive," Hancock told the Mercury News. "Some might even say the job growth is cause for euphoria."
