There was good news this week for US job seekers, as it was announced that the national unemployment rate had fallen to 5.8%, the lowest rate since the recession. However despite the low unemployment rate, many Americans are still struggling to find work, with the majority believing that their hometowns or cities simply do not offer adequate career opportunities. To assess the current state of job markets across America, job site conducted a study to find the easiest and hardest US cities in which to get a job. The sites’ data team compared the populations of all the US cities against the job listings posted for each area and identified both the best and worst cites of career opportunities. The study, which was published by Forbes on 7 November 2014, found that Miami was in fact the worst city for jobseekers, with only 23 jobs per 1000 residents. The Plato Group, a Miami based sales and marketing firm strongly disagree with the study’s findings and believe from their own experiences in the city that there are plenty of opportunities available to those looking for work.
