Easiest Place to Get a Job

The 15 Easiest Counties to Find a Job


One of the reasons you're having a tough time looking for a job could be that there simply is a lack of jobs where you live. Money magazine recently compiled a list of counties that have seen the biggest job growth in 2010 to 2011. This growth is attributed to factors like good location or tax structures conducive to companies, which make it more attractive for firms to either set up shop or further expand their operations in the area. Here are 15 counties that have seen the largest amount of jobs created last year.

  1. Loudoun County, VA: 83.6 percent job growth
  2. Fort Bend County, TX: 78.1 percent job growth
  3. Williamson County, TX: 73.8 percent job growth
  4. Montgomery County, TX: 63.5 percent job growth
  5. Douglas County, CO: 58.6 percent job growth
  6. Collin County, TX: 55.9 percent job growth
  7. Denton County, TX: 53.4 percent job growth
