10 best states to find jobs
Job hunting is never easy, but even with the tight job market some states are boasting tremendous opportunities to start and grow a career. Benefits managers in these states will need to create strategies to build a strong benefits package to help find and keep the best talent.
Personal-finance website WalletHub recently released a ranking of states with the best job opportunities. To determine its list, WalletHub compared the 50 states across 24 key indicators of job-market strength, opportunity and economic vitality.
Those sections were filtered into two major categories: job market (which includes metrics such as job opportunities, employment growth and job satisfaction) and economic environment (which includes factors such as median annual income, average number of hours in a work week and earned income-tax credit). WalletHub used data from the U.S. Census Bureau, Bureau of Labor and Gallup-Healthways.
