Where the Jobs Are(‘nt)

Looking for job in all the wrong places?  Job posting service Indeed.com provides valuable insights into where the jobs are and aren’t in the U.S. 

Indeed.com compiled the number of unemployed per job posting for the 50 biggest U.S. cities, and found the best job-to-job seeker ratios in Washington, D.C., San Jose, Baltimore and New York.  Worst is Miami, Florida at one job for every seven job seekers.  While this analysis covers all jobs, the job-seeker ratio remains somewhat greater for PR positions.  Fortunately, all ratios are improving gradually.
