If you are looking for a career, move to Provo.
At least, that is what SmartAsset recommends as the best place to get a career. SmartAsset named Provo its No. 1 City for Career Opportunities in 2015. SmartAsset explained:
“Located in Utah Valley along the Wasatch Front, Provo is a leading center for technology companies and tech development. It is home to the world headquarters of Novell, a software company founded in 1979. It has three ‘unicorn’ tech startups, privately funded businesses that have an estimated valuation of over $1 billion.
“But the region’s economic successes are not strictly limited to technology. It also has a burgeoning healthcare industry and two major universities in Brigham Young University and Utah Valley University. All of that helps explain why the number of jobs in the Provo metro area grew by an incredible 6.9% from 2014 to 2015, the highest rate of job growth of any metro in the U.S.”
Logan and Salt Lake also made the list taking No. 2 and No. 4, respectively. Utah was the only state that had three cities on the top 10 list. Ohio had two cities, Dayton and Toledo, on the list. Read all of the rankings here.
