Where The Jobs Will (And Won’t) Be In 2017


The following is an excerpt from Karsten Strauss | December 13, 2016 | Forbes.com |

Looking to start 2017 with a new job in a new location? You might want to think about making a move to Oregon, or even sunny Hawaii or Florida. According to a newly released study, those states have very positive employment outlooks going into the new year.

The study, from ManpowerGroup, a human resources consulting firm based in Wisconsin, shows which cities and states are home to employers looking to hire more people in the first quarter of 2017.

In conducting its employment outlook studies, ManpowerGroup surveys some 11,000 employers in the United States on whether they intend to hire more personnel in the coming quarter—or not. It then takes the percentage of employers looking to hire, subtracts the percentage intending not to and then factors in a seasonal adjustment factor. The result is an employment outlook percentage that shows hiring probability in various cities and states.

We took the list of cities with the highest – and lowest – employment outlooks and folded them into an easy-to-read slideshow, which you can view below.
