Seattle tops the list of best cities for job hunting

If you’re looking for a new job, you could do worse than conducting your job hunt in the Emerald City.

Seattle topped the list as the best city for job hunting in 2015 in a survey of 150 of the nation’s most populous cities conducted by financial social networking site WalletHub.com.

The site said it considered 16 factors ranging from job opportunities to employment growth in compiling the list.

Tacoma wasn’t quite as stellar a performer as its neighbor to the north. The City of Destiny ranked 59th on WalletHub’s list.

On the bottom of the list were several California cities, San Bernardino, Moreno Valley and Fresno along with Detroit, Hialeah, Florida and Memphis, Tennessee.

Just below Seattle on the upper end of the WalletHub rating were Des Moines, Iowa; Gilbert, Arizona, and Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Other Northwest cities were lower than Tacoma. Portland ranked 89th. Spokane was rated 92nd.
