Juju says it's tough in Tampa to find a job, but tougher in other Florida metros

It's getting tougher to get a job in the Tampa Bay area compared with other major metros, according to an analysis released Tuesday.

The Tampa region ranked 35th among 50 metros in job availability in Juju.com's monthly Job Search Difficulty Index. That's down three notches from the last ranking.

According to search engine Juju, there are an estimated 7.43 unemployed bay area residents per advertised job. The best metro area: Washington D.C. with a relatively healthy 1.93 jobless individuals per advertised job. The toughest market: Detroit, with a whopping 20 unemployed per advertised job.

Tampa Bay residents can take heart, however, that it's even tougher elsewhere in the state. Jacksonville came in 39th in the index, Orlando came in 43rd, and Miami was a dismal 48th, registering 14.06 unemployed per advertised job.

Juju's index is based on dividing the number of unemployed workers in each metro area (according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics) by the number of jobs in its index of millions of online jobs available in the country. The compilation of available online jobs is drawn from thousands of career portals, recruiter Web sites and Internet job boards.
