Top 10 Places to Land a Job

Beyond.com, the career network, is out with its career trends analysis report based on the most job opportunities per capita in the fourth quarter of 2013. They are:

1. Cheyenne, WY  
2. San Jose, CA
3. Manchester, NH
4. Des Moines, IA
5. Champaign, IL
6. Lawton, OK
7. Sioux City, IA
8. Jackson, TN
9. Harrisburg, PA
10.San Francisco, CA

Cheyenne, WY  and Lawton, OK growth is about oil.
San Jose, CA and San Francisco, CA growth is about Silicon Valley.


  1. I imagine Des Moines Iowa has something to do with the insurance industry as that is what runs that town. Sioux City Iowa is definitely under the thumb of Big Ag.

  2. That's weird, cus according to cnbc, the crappy jobs numbers for the last two months are due to bad weather. If that were true, WY, IA, NH, IL, and PA shouldn't be on this list.
