OHIO – (PR) With more than a quarter (28.5 percent) of U.S. job applications in metro areas that would likely require people to move, American workers are showing they are willing to move for the right opportunity. But which cities should people consider this year? Today, Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites, announced results of its newest jobs report identifying the 25 Best Cities for Jobs in 2018.

This list is compiled by ranking U.S. metros with the highest Glassdoor City Score, determined by weighing three factors equally: how easy it is to get a job (hiring opportunity), how affordable it is to live there (cost of living) and how satisfied employees are working there (job satisfaction).1 As part of this report, we include each metro’s median pay for employees, median home value, job satisfaction rating, number of current job openings and a selection of local in-demand jobs.

Glassdoor’s 25 Best Cities for Jobs in 2018 are:

1. Pittsburgh, PA

2. St. Louis, MO

3. Indianapolis, IN

4. Cincinnati, OH

This year, we see four newcomers among the Best Cities for Jobs: Boston (No. 6), Philadelphia (No. 18), Richmond (No. 24) and San Francisco (No. 22). Ohio is the state with the most cities represented among the top 25 (Cleveland, Cincinnatiand Columbus), while three other states, Missouri, Pennsylvania and North Carolina, are each represented with two cities on this year’s list. However, several of the country’s hot technology and finance hubs, including New York City, Los Angeles and San Jose, did not crack the top 25, primarily due to the high cost of living. Among the top 25, Chicago (No. 14) is the city with the most job openings with 271,947 open jobs. San Francisco (No. 22) and Washington, DC (No. 12) tie for the strongest job satisfaction rating (3.6).
