There are many reasons why people choose to relocate to a specific city. Better weather, better job opportunities and family are few. Enterprises TV takes a look at the top cities people move to and explores the reasons why they choose those cities.
Career site The Ladders noted that of the six million users in their database, 35% are looking for jobs in cities outside of the current location and outside of their state. Those in smaller cities such as Phoenix or Seattle have more applicants searching for a new city and a new job compared to those who live in larger cities who stay put. New York City is where most of the applicants from Philadelphia and Boston choose to search for a new job. New career and city seekers from Chicago send resumes to the Los Angeles, CA area, and those living in Washington, D.C. tend to expand their search to Atlanta, GA. Not surprisingly, Dallas, TX is a city where job seekers from all four regions of the country hope to relocate to for a new career opportunity. The Dallas area is a great city for working parents, has an affordable cost of living and is full of great activities for everyone. The Enterprises TV show notes that there are not that many applicants looking to move to The Sunshine State – Florida as there were in previous years. Perhaps this is due to a mediocre job economy or that is can be overcrowded at times during the year. In any situation, expanding a career search outside of a current location can give the careerist a wider variety of options and more hopeful outlook than sticking with a known location. And that’s a good thing.
