WalletHub Named Boca Raton 6th Best FL City for Finding a Job

The Sunshine State’s economy has seen its fair share of storm clouds in recent years, with the Great Recession taking a significant toll on both the housing market and tourism industry. And it took another huge hit in 2017, as hurricane Irma cost the state 1.8 million out-of-state visitors. But things are looking brighter of late, despite the natural disaster’s impact.

Florida’s economy is expected to reach $1 trillion in 2018, a number greater than that of all but 15 countries. And the unemployment rate is at just 3.9%, below the national average of 4.1%.

But not everywhere in Florida provides the same employment opportunities. In order to help Floridians make all the right moves, WalletHub compared 135 Florida cities based on 16 metrics that collectively speak to the employment environment that can be found in each. We considered factors ranging from the number job openings per unemployed resident and the average starting salary to the share of employers providing benefits and the length of the average work day.
