We all know the BIG D is the Best! Read on…. OR call me to find out more about our Great Metro – Let’s chat: 214.769.2142.
The latest edition of Forbes’ annual list has named Dallas the best place for jobs! Dallas metro includes Plano and Irving. It is ranked first among 70 other metro areas in the United States. Last time we saw Texas on the list was the Austin-Round Rock-San Marcos area in 2012. All the other winners were Bay Area (every year) with the exception of Silicon Valley in 2014.
According to Forbes: “Unlike the tech-driven Bay Area, Dallas’ economy has multiple points of strength, including aerospace and defense, insurance, financial services, life sciences, data processing and transportation. Employment in the metro area has expanded 20.3 percent over the past five years and 4.2 percent last year, with robust job creation in professional and business services, as well as in a host of lower-paid sectors like retail, wholesale trade and hospitality.”
The ranking is based on U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics unadjusted employment data reported from November 2005 to January 2017. Here’s the full methodology. Austin and San Antonio made the top 15 this year, at No. 7 and No. 12, respectively. The Fort Worth-Arlington area ranked at No. 28. [Forbes]
