More people are moving to the Midwest, for a variety of reasons. Lower cost of living is a big draw, and now, there are plenty of job opportunities to be found in the heartlands.
A recent article in the New York Times talks about the upper Midwest and Washington, D.C., as having a considerably stronger job market for young adults than the rest of the country.
The job climate in Washington, D.C.
The nation’s capital has always been a strong area for employment. This is often attributed to the fact that the federal government is the largest employer in the country, but there are other factors that contribute to a favorable job market—such as a highly desirable living area with plenty of commerce activity.
Washington DC movers can generally look forward to excellent benefits and retirement packages, particularly those employed by the government.
Education boosts the Minneapolis job market
A college degree can go a long way for a job seeker, and the residents of Minneapolis are well educated. In fact, the state of Minnesota is among the top 10 states with the greatest number of bachelor’s degree holders, reports the New York Times.
Because the Minneapolis-St. Paul region is the second largest economic center in the Midwest, Minneapolis movers will find plenty of great job opportunities—five Fortune 500 companies are headquartered in this city.
Iowa City: Ideal for educators and medical professionals
Named one of the Top 50 Smart Places to Live by Kiplinger’s, Iowa City is a Midwest destination with a strong job market. Those in the medical or educational fields will find a welcoming climate—three of the top 10 employers in the city are medical centers, and three are educational centers. Iowa City movers will typically be able to find careers they love that make a difference in the community.
