2018’s Best & Worst States for Jobs

Wallet Hub, May 31, 2018

Job hunting is never easy. Between searching for employment openings, updating résumés, contacting references and preparing for interviews, it’s hard work. Luckily, the number of opportunities available is growing, with over 164,000 new jobs added in April 2018 alone and the unemployment rate at the lowest it’s been since 2000.

But finding a job can be even harder when you don’t know where to begin looking for work, which is why narrowing your search area can be important. And because that part requires a bit of research, WalletHub did the homework to help you focus on the most important task: finding your dream position in a place you’ll love.

In order therefore to determine the most attractive states for employment, WalletHub compared the 50 states across 29 key indicators of job-market strength, opportunity and a healthy economy. Their data set ranges from employment growth to median annual income to average commute time.
