Best Cities to Score Your Dream Job
What is the best city to score your dream job? That depends on your occupation. If you’re interested in becoming a civil engineer or computer systems analyst, which is expecting an above-average rate of employment in 2018, then that would be Los Angeles, CA.
That’s all according to a new study by personal finance website GOBankingRates. Results in its Best Cities to Score Your Dream Job report showed that Los Angeles has the most job openings and offers the highest salaries of any U.S. city for civil engineers and computer systems analysts
The website’s report went on to identify the top three cities for the best jobs in the nation using U.S. News & World Report's list of Best Jobs of 2017 and found the positions in each industry with at least 10,000 projected new openings during the next decade. It then looked at job listings on ZipRecruiter to determine which cities had the highest average salaries for each job, and of the top three cities, which had the most available job openings. See the table.
The report, gobankingrates.com/making-money/best-cities-for-dream-jobs, found:
1. Dallas, TX is the top city to look for work as a dentist. The city has the highest median dentist salary and the most job openings among the top-paying cities.
2. Interpreters and translators rank highly on U.S. News & World Report's list of Best Creative & Media Jobs because of the work-life balance the position offers. New York, NY has the greatest number of translator jobs among the cities with the highest earning potential for the position.
3. Chicago, IL has the most available sales manager jobs out of the cities that pay the highest for the role. Chicago is also one of the U.S. cities where incomes are growing the fastest, according to a separate GOBankingRates study, gobankingrates.com/making-money/cities-incomes-shrinking-growing-fastest.
