Orlando in Top 10 Cities For Job Growth in 2015
(FORBES.com) – A few cities and states have offered job seekers far friendlier climates than the nation at large this year.
The cities and states that make this list have experienced the strongest non-agricultural job growth over the first three quarters of 2015, according to analysis of data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics by Professor Lee McPheters at the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University.
Projections show the U.S. on track to add 3 million jobs this year, indicating a 2.2 percent monthly average in national job growth, an increase of about 1.8 percent since last year.
Topping the list of cities and metro areas (including one million or more workers) for job growth thus far this year is San Jose, California with 5.5 percent growth so far in 2015–more than twice the nationwide average. Orlando, Riverside, Dallas, and Seattle round out the top five, all with job growth of 3.5 percent or above.
