Provo, Salt Lake Lead US In Job Creation

The Provo-Orem community ranks number 1 in the US for recent job creation, according to a new study by the Milken Institute and Greenstreet Real Estate Partners.

Forbes has this article about the rankings. Below are excerpts.

"If you're looking for work, your best shot may be in Provo-Orem, Utah, the city with the best record of recent job creation.

"Raleigh-Cary, N.C. ranked second and Salt Lake City, Utah came in third. Washington state also had two cities in the top 10, Tacoma and Olympia.

"Texas cities have benefited from the large run-up in oil and gas prices in recent months, the report said, while cities in Utah and Washington saw job creation spurred by technology companies that have rebounded from the tech bubble earlier this decade."

The Provo Herald has this article about the rankings.
