This Utah City Is One Of The Best In The Country For Jobs

Everyone from students graduating this May to people unhappy in their current jobs knows that one of the most important factors of finding work is looking in the right place. Some cities just offer more opportunities than others. A recent study compiled by WalletHub recently identified the best cities for work in 2017, and you’ll be happy to see that one Utah city made the top 10.

The study included the 150 most populated American cities; Salt Lake City is the only Utah city large enough to make that list.

WalletHub ranked each city on 23 criteria. The study included factors such as “most job opportunities,” median annual income,” and “unemployment rate.” Each city was given two composite scores: one for “Job Market,” and the other for “Socioeconomic Environment.”
