Written by Posted On Wednesday, 12 October 2016 17:02

Online job services have become a huge business. They were worth around $15 billion globally in 2015, according to market researcher Staffing Industry Analysts. Proximity to good career opportunities is always a good option but not all cities are created equally. And which city will give you the most opportunity largely depends on what career path you’ve chosen. According to a blog featured in, whether you just graduated or are simply looking to make a change, it might be time to reconsider your location if you are looking for a job.

Nationally, the unemployment rate is holding at less than 5% — down from a 2009 high of around 10% — and the job market is seeing steady growth. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, most of that growth between 2012 and 2015 has taken place in a few key sectors.

Some occupation categories are in a league of their own when it comes to growth. Computer and mathematics grew by 14.49%, construction and extraction at 9.24% and closely behind is art, design, entertainment, sports, and media with 8.42%.

The United States is very diverse, and the smaller the town, the more distorted employment figures can be. Denver, Colorado was included in the top 25 most populous cities in the United States (according to U.S. Census Data), and found top-ten job density data for three of the country’s fastest-growing occupations.

Of all the occupations, construction and extraction are the least geographically diverse. As populations expand, so does housing and city infrastructure. Denver, which is undergoing its own residential and commercial construction boom, coupled with ongoing energy projects, (mostly tied to the extraction and transportation of crude oil and natural gas) made its way to the 2nd spot in Construction & Extraction occupations.

Software and web developers, support specialists, systems analysts, network administrators, programmers, as well as statisticians, mathematicians, and computer research scientists comprise this perpetually fast-growing category. Of all of the fastest-growing occupation categories, computer and mathematics surpasses them all when it comes to city job density and Denver was ranked #8 in Computer & Mathematics Occupations.

Jobs in the Arts, Design, Entertainment, Sports & Media category that includes actors, journalists, public relations, communications practitioners, social media specialists, designers, musicians, and professional athletes — are concentrated in large metropolitan areas dedicated to entertainment and media. Denver, which is in the # 9 spot, shows a robust location quotient of 1.13.

As the economy continues to recover and cities diversify their economies, job hunters have more opportunities than ever to choose the city that matches best with their desired careers. For the careers listed above, Denver just might be in more and more people’s future.
