These Are The Best Cities for Jobs in 2020 According to Glassdoor – inc.com post

With more job seekers willing to relocate, these are the top locations for hiring in 2020.

By: Jason Aten tech columnist.


Glassdoor.com regularly looks at cities and also interviews employees and job seekers about their favorite places to work. We’re not sure whether their samples are statistically significant, but their findings are always interesting.

We were interested to see that 30% of all job seekers are looking to relocate. We were also very interested in seeing that Detroit is number 10 on this list of “Top 25 Cities” for employment – and there are over 70,000 openings in that city alone.

Whether you’re looking to grow your team, or you’re an individual looking for a new opportunity, you should know the best cities right now for job opportunities. According to Glassdoor, “almost 30 percent of applications in a typical week are from job seekers hoping to move to a new metro.” That’s a substantial number of job seekers looking for an opportunity outside their area.

There were a few surprises in the list, mostly that cities like New York and San Francisco are nowhere on the list. Also, it’s interesting to see cities like Cleveland and Detroit that were among the hardest hit during the last recession starting to rebound in terms of hiring and job opportunities. 

With that in mind, here are the top 10 cities, along with the criteria Glassdoor used to compile their list:

1. Raleigh, NC (Best overall)

Glassdoor says that Raleigh comes out on top due to a combination of strong job opportunities, high job satisfaction, and affordable cost of living. It also benefits from the presence of three research universities, which attract employers in fields like education, healthcare, and tech, contributing to the over 52,000 open jobs in the city.
