A new ranking from Ajilon Professional Staffing named the Twin Cities as the best place for finding a job. The recruiting firm considered a number of factors to determine its list, including the diversity of industries in the city, cost of living, the range in size of companies offering employment, and level of higher education among its residents.
According to Ajilon, "Minneapolis-St. Paul rose to the top of this year's list, in large part due to the fact that hiring is on the rise in this market for many of the big industry players in fields including financial services, health care, retail, and manufacturing--contributing to a lower level of unemployment. In addition, there is an increased demand in Minneapolis for specialty positions, including specialty tax and compliance, IT audit and SEC-related experience. Combined with additional factors including relatively low cost of living and low crime and poverty rates, the Twin Cities offers an ideal environment for job seekers."
