/ Asked by Indira
I want to move to a location where I can find more opportunities for my career. I would like to know what city/state is most likely to have jobs. For example: California=tech, software. I'm getting discouraged since I specify that I am willing to relocate and that I don't need relocation benefits. I'm worried because my education and experience is abroad (although regionally accredited) and my location, recruiters are disregarding me. So if I look locally I might get more leads? I send tons of applications online! Any suggestions would be appreciated.

One way to assess the number of jobs open per state is to use the US.JOBS website (www.jobcentral.org).  Here, you can search by state to understand the number and types of openings by state.  

All the best with your search.

Your career choice, personal needs and desired employment industry have a lot to do with this answer, so don’t discount these decisions. But very generally, take a look at unemployment numbers at the Department of Labor website to get a very quick view of where people are highly employed. Minneapolis, Denver, Oklahoma City and Austin have topped the list as big cities where people don’t have a problem finding jobs, but there are lots of places across the country with strong economic growth. Cross reference this with companies in your industry, plus where you may actually like to live to get a start.

I would recommend narrowing down the field of work you would like to have a career in and even the top ten places you would like to live. That is a starting point for you. In your searches of areas you want to live in you will start to understand if there are jobs available in your field of work. You never know, there could be local jobs available that you are not even aware of. I would recommend increasing the job search you are doing. If you are looking on Monster and Indeed for example and are not lucking out, then I would try looking on LinkedIn and even company’s career websites. You might be getting discouraged with the jobs that you are applying for but there are always additional means of finding more job openings. Good luck with your job search!
