In all three cities I searched the jobs seemed to be pretty diverse with leanings toward one industry or another but overall, diverse. The first city was obviously Madison, and when I searched that there were only two pages of jobs and good number of them were in the industry of manufacturing and production and all but a couple were permanent or contract as opposed to temporary. The second city I searched was Chicago and that had the most job options with about 10 pages worth of them and it also looked to be like the most diverse job market with jobs from marketing to the arts. Again, most of the jobs were either permanent or contract as opposed to temporary The third city I searched was San Francisco, which turned up about 5 pages of jobs most of which were permanent or temporary again. This was also a pretty diverse job market, but it did seem to have a little bit of a leaning towards the electronic industry. Overall a lot of the jobs seemed to be low-ranking positions or remedial jobs duties like being an assistant or secretary or operating a forklift. While most of it was permanent, the jobs definitely didn't seem very worthwhile to me.


  1. I agree with you that most of these jobs listed did not seem particularly great. I definitely don't think that I would use Manpower to help me find a job after school.

  2. I found it interesting how many of the jobs located in Madison were in the manufacturing industry, but in Chicago job opportunities were much more diverse.
