The region of Tennessee that includes Nashville had more than 1,000 tech-related job openings in the fourth quarter of 2011, further evidence that technology positions are no longer as concentrated on the U.S. coasts as they once were but are spread throughout the country, according to outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas. Technology is currently among the nation's strongest job markets. For example, employment at companies providing computer-systems design and related services increased by 60,200 in 2011 to 1,525,100, the firm says.
