U.S. States with Plentiful Jobs

The unemployment rate in the United States still stands at over 9%, but not every region of the country is in such bad shape.  If you are hunting for a job you might get luckier looking places other than your hometown.

Ever thought about living in North Dakota?  The state’s unemployment rate is only 4.2%.  Other states with unemployment rates under 5% are South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming and Iowa.

Areas to avoid include the East North Central, which has an employment rate 9.5%, and the East South Central, which has an unemployment rate of 9.8%.  The East North Central area’s unemployment rate is also at 9.8%.

In general the job market in the U.S. is tough.  Millions of workers have been unemployed for years now.  However, some areas of the country have healthy job markets right now.  If you are in search of a job and are about to give up hope, you might want to look somewhere you’ve never thought of…like North Dakota.
