Denver Considered Top City for Job Seekers

The number-crunchers at the consumer website NerdWallet have considered various factors and determined Denver is a good place to be looking for a job in this year. A great place, actually. One of the best.

Denver ranked No. 4 on the NerdWallet list, which was calculated based on four measurements: unemployment rate, population growth, median income and monthly homeowner costs. Those measurements gave Denver a score of 74.7 points.

The No. 1 city for job seekers, Austin, received 80.1 points by NerdWallet’s calculations.

Wedged between Austin and Denver were Washington, D.C., and Fort Worth. The complete list can be found here.

Here’s what NerdWallet had to say about finding a job in Denver: “Just east of the Rocky Mountains, the Mile High city’s main industries include aerospace and manufacturing. Two of the major employers in the area are Ball Corporation and Lockheed Martin. For those looking to secure a job, the nonprofit association SCORE Denver provides low-cost services to help entrepreneurs and small businesses succeed in the area. The Denver Chamber of Commerce helps young people network and get involved in the community with The Denver Metro Chamber Young Professionals Group. The University of Colorado Denver has a substantial career services department that even offers a Certificate of Employability to help students find employment in a competitive job market.” Click here to go to full article.
