job interview

Unsurprisingly, three of the top ten best cities in the United States for employment are in the Grand Canyon State, according to a new report from personal finance site WalletHub. Scottsdale in Arizona tops the list of 182 American cities for the second year in a row.

South Burlington in Vermont is the second-best city in the United States for employment with 65.47. San Francisco, California (63.17), Austin, Texas (61.82), and Fremont, California (61.53) were the third, fourth and fifth-best cities in the United States for job seekers in 2020, respectively.

Worst cities in the United States for employment: The worst city was found to be the City of Detroit in Michigan with a score of 38.40 (the only city to get below 40). It got a rank of 180 in the “job market” and 182 in “socio-economics.”

Fayetteville in North Carolina finished the second worst with a score of 40.19 with a “job market” score of 181 and a “socio-economics” score of 155. Newark in New Jersey (40.43), Stockton in California (41.27) and Brownsville in Texas (41.33) were the third, fourth and fifth-worst states, respectively.

To compile the rankings, the finance site looked at 182 American cities, made up of the 150 most populous and at least 2 of the most populated in each state, and their overall job markets. The cities were ranked in two categories: job market and socioeconomics. Those two categories consisted of various factors including job opportunities, employment growth, monthly average starting salary, etc.
