Charlotte ranked No. 5 best city for job-seekers

Among the the 100 largest U.S. cities, Charlotte ranks fifth-best for job-seekers, according to consumer finance website Nerdwallet.com. The website studied data on unemployment rates, population growth and cost of living to come up with its ranking.

Austin, Texas, came in first, followed by Washington, D.C., Fort Worth, Texas, Denver and then Charlotte. The analysis credited Charlotte with having a diverse economy, including big banks such as Bank of America and Wells Fargo, as well as major manufacturing employers. The Charlotte area's population grew by 5.6 percent from 2010 to 2012, the analysis found, and its monthly homeowner costs and median income compared favorably to the other top 5 cities. The Raleigh area came in sixth, with the study taking note of its robust research and development sector.

On paper, I am sure it ranks, but if you live here, work here, and look for a job here, you will beg to differ. I have been searching for over a year for a job, and have found nothing, as many others have as well. Charlotte has a long way to go.
