STUDY: Top 3 Cities for Job Growth Are in Arizona

According to a recent study conducted by Wallethub, national unemployment numbers are low and strong job growth appears to be making a mark in 10 U.S. cities above all others. These 10 were chosen based a range of metrics that include population size (small but growing), socioeconomic factors, livability, and the strength of promising industries like healthcare and social assistance.

Unsurprisingly, three of the top 10 cities are in one amazing state: Arizona! Gilbert, AZ clocked in at number three, and the top two positions are tied and include Chandler, AZ (population 247,477) and Peoria, AZ.

We all know that Arizona wins the race for beautiful scenery, friendly people, a warm climate, and a rich culture and history. But not everyone knows about Arizona’s booming economic growth and central position in the tech industry. Most economists agree that the future of the US job market lies in the service sector, and Arizona cities are ahead of the curve on this point.

Employers searching for the best candidates in this corner of the marketplace are wise to center their staffing strategies in our beautiful state. And Arizona also represents a great career launch site for candidates looking for great opportunities with growing companies in healthcare, tech, media, and hospitality. Arizona is certainly having its day in the sun, and we’re excited to be located at the center of the action.
