Wyoming Cities Miss Top 100 on ‘Best Cities to Find a Job’ List
Of all the resolutions floating around out there, I would say finding a new job is one of the most popular.
I feel that January is a popular time to look for a new job. I have no evidence to support this, but it is a time of new beginnings. After evaluating how the prior year went it seems only natural that if you were unhappy in your last job, you'd be looking for something new right about now.
There are a lot of factors that go into finding a new job and where we live could have a big influence on being hired.
WalletHub took at look at this recently when they complied a list of "2018's Best Places to Find a Job." In their study, they looked specifically at factors that effect job-market strength like opportunities, unemployment, average starting salary, potential for growth, and more. With that information they have put Cheyenne and Casper outside of the top 100.
Of course, this doesn't make us the best place to find a job, but we're certainly not the worst.
Cheyenne pulled at 128 rank, while Casper landed at number 161. One contributing factor to job-market strength that hurt Casper's rank was that of "lowest employment growth." Casper ranked dead last in this portion.
