Chicago made its comeback, now make yours

It looks like the baseball winds are finally blowing in the North Side’s favor.

Last night, the Chicago Cubs won this year’s World Series title, defeating the Cleveland Indians 8-7 in a dramatic Game 7. The Cubs overcame a 3-games-to-1 deficit in the best of 4 series, and it took 10 innings to settle the championship round Wednesday night. It’s the Cubbies’ first championship title since 1908, which represented the longest championship drought in all major American professional sports.

The Cubs completed their comeback, now it’s time for yours. Using data provided by the TalentNeuron tool from insights and technology company CEB, we’ve identified the top companies hiring in Chicago right now—with the 10 companies that have the most job postings on Monster over the last 30 days.

Chicago Public Schools ranked No. 1, which should come to the surprise of no one, as it is the third largest school system in the country, with more than 600 schools. Added bonus: Chicago ranked No. 4 on our list of best-paying cities for teachers.
