Top 5 US Cities For Seeking Year End Jobs

By FG Dullin

The year is about to end, but it is not too late to for people who are still seeking jobs in 2016. For this month of December, there are currently top 5 US cities that continue to close the gap of unemployment margin.

To best understand how a city qualifies as the best for job-seekers, the most quantifiable basis is a comparison between a ratio of residents and the average number of appointments. A report published by Forbes Magazine highlights these cities based on the remaining job postings per 1,000 residents. This updated list was first published in October and they provide a good window of opportunity for those seeking jobs in 2016 for the last time.

1. San Jose, California

67 jobs per 1,000 residents.

2. Salt Lake, Utah

65 jobs per 1,000 residents

3. Denver, Colorado

57 jobs per 1,000 residents

4. Raleigh, North Carolina

52 jobs per 1,000 residents

5. Seattle, Washington

42 jobs per 1,000 residents

Curiously, a comparison from the same article published by Life Hacker in May of 2016 still placed San Jose as the foremost destination that provides employment opportunities for Americans. Meanwhile, Seattle dropped to the 5th rank while cities like Salt Lake and Raleigh picked up the 2nd and 4th place from its previous 7th and 8th ranking because of its economic and financial stability. Colorado suddenly reached the 3rd rank considering that this city was nowhere in the top 10 May list.

Things are indeed looking up for American citizens living or immigrating into these top 5 US cities. American citizens who are seeking jobs in 2016 as of this final month could expect positive improvements for careers in health care, steel manufacturing, and automobile production. An article published by Jobs & Hire underscores the 100-day prosperity plan of US President Donald Trump. After all, one of his top priorities for the country is to create wealth by revolutionizing the nation's current labor conditions.
