Are you itching to break away from the mold and take on a new adventure this year? If it’s time that you find a new job in a new city, you’ll want to consider one of these 10 cities with the hottest job markets and lots of job vacancies.
Ziprecruiter identified the hottest job markets in 2020 that you should definitely consider if you’re looking for a new move. Here’s where they recommend:
#1 Fargo, ND
Fargo might not be your top-pick for future city, but jobs are growing at a high rate meaning employers are having issues finding people. But Fargo’s a little cold and barren, so before you go you’ll need to get some snow boots.
#2 Boston, MA
For those with the skills and desire for a high wage job in education, Boston is a great choice. Not only that, but they have a booming entrepreneurial industry. The market is growing at an above-average rate, so now is the time to find a great job!
#3 Sioux Falls, SD
Sioux Falls is a heavy-hitter for the health industry due to the major hospitals in the area. It also has favorable business taxes which has attracted some major financial players to the area.
#4 Providence-Warwick, RI
With major hospitals and universities, the Providence-Warwick is great for job seekers that specialise in those industries. They also have favorable business taxes, meaning it also attracts some larger company headquarters.
#5 Portland, ME
Portland has recently transformed its economy from a manufacturing-heavy industry to service based meaning there are jobs there to be had. It doesn’t hurt that they’ve also seen a boom in internet based industries as well.
#6 San Francisco, CA
San Francisco is bursting with high paying job vacancies that are almost $15,000 annually over the national median wage. This vibrant city is a great hub for technology, but due to its popular location and vibrancy, it’s a tad bit expensive. So, make sure you counter offer!
#7 Washington, DC (and Area)
The Washington, DC, area is bustling with government and related industries. These are high paying jobs that are “relatively resilient to economic downturns.” If you have the skills and desire, this could be a great place for you.

#10 New York, NY
Ok, so here me out on this one. Ziprecruiter identified New York as one of the best places for job seekers to find work, and honestly, it makes sense. Because it’s such a major business center, there are a ton of companies hanging out there. However, as well all know New York City can be quite pricey, so you’ll want to do your research before you head over there.
