Physicians, APs: Here are 5 Cities with High Employment Growth

Posted on | Posted By | 0 Comments

Personal finance site WalletHub recently unveiled a list of the best and worst cities in which one could find work in 2015 by evaluating the local job markets in “150 of the most populated U.S. cities across 16 key metrics,” including employment growth and starting salaries.

According to Richie Bernardo, author of the article, 2015 is a great time for the job market with nonfarm employment growing “by nearly 220,000 jobs per month while unemployment will fall to 5.4 percent by the fourth quarter.”

In doing research on an area that has offered you a job, a pretty good sense of the economic status of potential patients can be gained by looking at the statistics included in this article.

In our last post, we looked at the top five and bottom five cities for job opportunities. This time, we begin by looking at the cities with the highest and lowest employment growth.

The top five includes mostly western and southern cities, with Baton Rouge, La., coming in at No. 5, Salt Lake City, Utah, at No. 4, and Ontario, Calif., at No. 3.

Rounding out the top two are Cape Coral, Fla., and Stockton, Calif.

The five cities with the lowest employment growth are Omaha, Neb., at No. 146, Chattanooga, Tenn., at No. 147, Columbus, Ga., at No. 148, Knoxville, Tenn., at No. 149, and occupying the lowest spot, No. 150, Overland Park, Kan.

Moving on to the cities with the highest monthly median starting salaries, we have three California cities tied for third place: Fremont, Oakland, and San Francisco. Washington D.C., is No. 2, while another California city, San Jose, claims the top spot.

The cities with the lowest monthly median starting salary—ranked from 144 to 148—include Fresno, Calif., at No. 144, Montgomery, Ala., at No. 145, and Lincoln, Neb., at No. 146.

Springfield, Mo., claims No. 147, while Laredo, Texas, comes in last at No. 148.

In our next post, we’ll look at unemployment rates for high school graduates and for those with bachelor’s degrees or higher.

As physicians and advanced practitioners who are looking for jobs, what factors are most important to you in deciding to relocate to an area?
