National headlines and newspaper articles celebrate the United States’ job gains and low unemployment. But all news is local, as they say, so how do those headlines hold up in cities across the U.S.?
Below, we list 10 cities by their rates of job growth. We turned to a study by HowMuch.net for rates of employment growth for 2013-2018 in 381 metro areas and the median salary in each city.
These findings can help you spot good cities for a job search and get an idea of what salaries there might be like.
