Austin Achieves YET ANOTHER Ranking! #2 in Country for JOBS!!

Ajilon Professional Staffing, a leader in recruiting and project consulting, has just released their list of the 10 best cities for finding employment in the United States. Guess who ranked #2? AUSTIN, TEXAS of course! The only city surpassing Austin for the top spot is Minneapolis-St. Paul. This ranking only adds to the massive pile that Austin has achieved in the past few years. Austin has become a staple of resilience in an national economic crisis with the ability to keep unemployment low by generating new jobs and featuring a variety of available employment fields.

Ajilon Professional Staffing had this to say regarding Austin: "Austin, Texas came in second place on the list as a result of the city’s low cost of living and diverse talent pool. Austin’s robust educational community also contributed to boosting job growth in the market. Home to several major universities, including the University of Texas, local businesses have a vast pool of well-educated recent graduates to choose from for local employment opportunities in Austin."

As a man who's job it is to sell Austin, these rankings definitely make my job easier. I've lived all over the country, even living abroad, and I've travelled the vast majority of the United States and if there is a city that has it ALL, it's Austin. Night life, outdoor recreation, festivals, culture, lake fun, parks, low-cost of living, outstanding property values, job market, events, live music, and friendliness of the people... Austin is without a doubt one of the BEST places to live in the United States.
