The 5 Best States That Are Hiring

Page 1 of 4

Best States that are Hiring: Despite its recovery since the financial crisis of 2008, the US economy still has an unemployment rate around 2 percent higher than before the economic troubles began. Finding a job can thus still prove hard, especially in certain regions of the US struggling to regain their foothold. On the other hand, there are a handful of states that are doing very well and offer great employment opportunities to those seeking a job.

Since hiring rates and unemployment vary amongst different states so dramatically, we procured a list of the best states that are hiring in 2014. We have already seen what the top 10 hiring companies of the moment were in a previous list, so now we wanted to broaden the horizon and see which states offer the best opportunities. After all, having a great resume, a good appearance, and faring well in an interview, means nothing if you currently reside in a state where jobs are scarce.

In order to present you with the list of the 5 best states that are hiring in 2014, we analyzed information provided by the ManpowerGroup in their Manpower Employment Outlook Survey. This survey takes into account the opinions of 18,000 hiring managers regarding their future plans for hiring, allowing us to identify the states with the strongest chances of seeing improved employment rates. Overall, the survey revealed that around 72% of employers across the US intend to maintain their existing workforce levels. Yet our interest lies with the 19% that have plans to hire new employees, from which we can draw some conclusions regarding the states that are hiring the most going into 2015.

So, if you are having a tough time finding a job and are thinking about taking your chances in another state, you might just find a winner amongst the following states.

5) Wisconsin

During the last quarter of 2014, employers in Wisconsin will be hiring at an accelerated pace, making 2014 a great year for job-seekers. Despite not being one of the economic power-houses of the US, the end of 2014 will be a great year for construction, manufacturing, and transportation in Wisconsin. Overall, the fourth quarter of 2014 has a projected net employment outlook growth rate of 19%, representing a 10% bump compared to last year’s numbers.

4) Mississippi

With a job growth rate of around 2 percent, Mississippi is the fourth best state that is hiring during the last quarter of 2014. According to the Manpower survey, around 23% of employers will be hiring in the last months of the year, making this a job market worth looking into. In fact, job prospects are abundant and experiencing an upwards trend, as the 13% boost compared to the third quarter outlook demonstrates.
