Glassdoor.com, a job site that analyzes data on job openings, quality of life and home values, rated Pittsburgh the No. 1 city for jobs in 2017.
Each city was ranked based on three factors: cost of living, job satisfaction and hiring opportunity.
According to the report, Pittsburgh has more than 95,000 job openings, with civil engineer, registered nurse and project manager listed as “hot jobs.” The city has a $44,000 median base salary, and the median home value is $137,400.
The report, based on a comparison of the 50 most populated U.S. metropolitan cities, rated cities on a five-point scale to earn a “city score.” Pittsburgh earned 4.4 points, as did Indianapolis, Indiana; Kansas City, Missouri; Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina; St. Louis, Missouri; and Memphis, Tennessee.
Surprisingly, or maybe not so surprisingly, New York City, San Francisco and Los Angeles did not make the list.
