When asked about the best city in the US to find an attractive job, images of New York, San Francisco or Los Angeles automatically come to mind. No wonder, for all of them offer unique job opportunities, and they are all impressive cities. However, they did not make it to the top of the 2018 list of best cities for jobs.
On the contrary, a report by Glassdoor claims that the best American cities to find a job are mid-sized metropolises, which offer better incentives than bigger cities. Thus, by considering how easy it is to get a job together with the degree of satisfaction of employees as well as the cost of living, the report finds that Pittsburgh is the most valued city to work in, followed bySt. Louis, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, and Hartford.
Such an achievement is the result of Pittsburgh’s ability to rise from the ashes following the closure of steel mills in the 1980s. Indeed, a strong commitment to an economy based on technology, robotics, health, engineering, education and finance has turned Pennsylvania’s second largest city into a sustainable city with ample green spaces, good public transportation, and 68 institutions of higher education including both colleges and universities.
