    Washington, Des Moines Best Cities For Jobs

    Number Two on our list might be a little more surprising: Des Moines, Iowa. Relatively high household incomes and a low unemployment rate mean this capital city five-and-a-half hours west of Chicago is primed to add good jobs that newcomers can fill. Moody’s Analytics, which compiled all the projections for this survey, estimates Des Moines-area employment will increase by 8.6% or 36,000 jobs to 461,000 by the end of 2016. Unemployment topped out at 6% in the depths of the recession and stands a little below that now, compared with 8.3% nationwide

    Great news for Des Moines however all of this is cyclical. I think that people would have less trouble finding jobs if they were not set on staying in the town they reside. If people were more willing to relocate, it would be less of a problem. However, I understand all of the issues that come along with relocating especially for older people with families.
