No 2 best metro for job seekers (3).pngIndeed researchers analyzed the job postings of the 50 metro areas with the most postings on Indeed.com and Orlando, not surprisingly, finds itself second on the list of top metros for job seekers. Indeed evaluated four key considerations in the job hunt: local job market favorability, average salary adjusted for cost of living, employers’ score for work-life balance and job security/advancement opportunities in Indeed’s review database.

What does Orlando have to offer on top of our blue skies and warm weather? Per Indeed’s research, Orlando offers some of the highest scores for work-life balance, job security and advancement, as well as performing 98% higher than other cities in job market favorability.

While Orlando is best known for our large leisure and hospitality industry presence, the trade and transportation industries follow closely behind. And with the recent opening of BRIDG in Osceola County, growing number of startup tech companies planting roots in Orlando and tech companies relocating and expanding here, the opportunities for job seekers are diverse.

With a thriving tech scene, supportive business community and a climate that caters to a quality work-life balance, we are sure to see Orlando continue to stay on top in years to come.
