Dave’s Diary: Those Looking For Work Should Look in Seattle

Hello Horace Greeley…what’s that you say?  “Washington (D.C.) is not a place to live in. The rents are high, the food is bad, the dust is disgusting and the morals are deplorable. Go West, young man, go West and grow up with the country”.

 Famed newspaperman Greeley wrote that in 1851 and according to Forbes Magazine it’s still true today.  (And the morals thing is true too but I digress).

If you want to find a good job go west…to Seattle.

SEATTLE SKYLINE

The human resources firm Adecco Staffing looked at the U.S. cities with the fullest employment, according to the Department of Labor, as well as internal data around job growth and demand, and then determined which areas are the best for finding a job.  Seattle made the top ten along with leaders Bethesda, Maryland and Austin, Texas.

They all share in pure job growth and new businesses–be it technology start-ups or new manufacturing plants. These cities offer a well-educated and skilled workforce, which make them attractive to companies seeking to expand or change locations.”

Seattle unemployment rate is 5.5% and the companies looking to hire include: Manufacturing, Education, Health Services.  Seattle also needs Engineers, Assemblers and Administrators.  Go West…and good luck!
