ZipRecruiter.com came out with their list of The 10 Hottest Job Markets in 2020. So this might be helpful if you are looking for a new job where you live or if you are thinking about moving to someplace where you might find a good job.
ZipRecruiter ranked the hottest metro areas with more than 100,000 residents and here’s what they found for the 10 Hottest Job Markets in 2020
- Fargo, ND-MN: The Fargo metro area lands the top spot due to its rapid job growth rate and high opportunity index.
- Boston-Cambridge-Newton, MA-NH: Boston is a top performer when it comes to the number of high-wage job opportunities available.
- Sioux Falls, SD: Like Fargo, Sioux Falls rises up the rankings due to its rapid job growth rate and high opportunity index. It has a particularly impressive number of job opportunities in healthcare and financial services because it has four major hospitals and because its lack of a state corporate income tax has attracted multiple financial companies to establish their headquarters there.
- Providence-Warwick, RI-MA: At a time when the fastest-growing sectors are education and healthcare, Providence is at an advantage, with its many major hospitals and universities.
- Portland-South Portland, ME: Portland, ME makes the rankings primarily because of its high opportunity index.
- San Francisco-Oakland-Berkeley, CA: San Francisco, CA wins on pay, with more than half of job postings offering $50,000 or more per year in pay according to job postings on ZipRecruiter.
- Washington-Arlington-Alexandria, DC-VA-MD-WV: Home to the U.S. government, numerous federal contracting opportunities, and hundreds of global organizations, the Washington, DC metro area boasts a large number of high-paying jobs and is relatively resilient to economic downturns.
- Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington, PA-NJ-DE-MD: Philadelphia, PA is not usually thought of as a fast-growing economy. But the recent rapid growth in job postings suggests exciting changes may be on the horizon.
- Bismarck, ND: Like Fargo and Sioux Falls, Bismarck makes the running primarily due to its high opportunity index score. The city boasts an unemployment rate of just 1.8%.
- New York-Newark-Jersey City, NY-NJ-PA: Economists have long understood the benefits of large job markets, and New York, NY is the largest in the country.
