best cities for
job growth 2017
Opportunity awaits out west

F

or movers looking to identify new business opportunities,
it seems that going West is the smart idea. This year, the
list of top cities for job growth is dominated by cities in
that region. Of the 10 listed, six are in the Western part of
the U.S. Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., has the largest employment
growth over the past year, rising 5.76 percent. Only one city on
the East Coast makes the list-Raleigh, N.C.
In looking at the best cities for young professionals in 2017,
we again see Seattle and Austin at the top of the list. These
areas continue to be popular destinations for young people
seeking jobs. Many of these cities are also on the overall list
above, showing that regardless of job experience, these locations
are good for business. All of the locations on the list for young
professionals have unemployment below the last reported
national average of 4.3 percent.
The list of top inbound areas in 2016 is again dominated
by popular retirement destinations in the Southern U.S.
Wilmington, N.C., tops the 2016 list, with 73 percent of all
shipments reported coming into the city. Florida is the most
popular state on the list, with four cities represented. This list
does not take shipment volume into account, simply the most
unbalanced percentage toward inbound shipments.
