The Hottest Job Markets

With all the talk of employees losing their jobs, there are still some hot job markets in the U.S. My home city of Raleigh, NC (and neighboring Durham) scored a spot as the fourth hottest in the country in a study by the American City Business Journals.

Raleigh added nearly 79,000 jobs over the past 5 years, which is a 22% increase, towering above the nationwide average of only 6%. The Texas cities of Houston, Austin and Dallas-Fort Worth scored the top three slots.

What is not included in this study is the number of businesses that have been started in the area.

Over 98% of companies in the U.S. employee less than 100 people. Small business literally fuels our economy. If you're not in a position that you like, take charge, follow your passions and increase your income doing something you love.
