Pick up any issue of the Wall Street Journal or the Dallas Business Journal and you will no doubt hear of the struggle to attract top talent. The struggle is real, even for the coolest firm.

I recently read an article in the Wall Street Journal by Lauren Weber about Salesforce.com struggling to attract talent. A tech firm struggling in San Francisco? What? So, what did they do? They used Economic Graph, a LinkedIn tool, to analyze the talent pool in the area. What they found was that San Francisco was not the right place for them to hire these jobs, so they shifted these jobs to Seattle, Boulder, and Vancouver.
