Washington, D.C., Denver, Colo., Austin, Texas, Lafayette, La. They are all among online financial magazine Mainstreet.com’s list of 20 cities “surviving the recession.” The online magazine writes:
This recession has been a brutal one for many job-seekers. The job market has deteriorated in many parts of the country, but some cities were harder hit than others, and some cities are starting to emerge from the recession, offering new job opportunities.
Things do seem to be improving on the jobs front — at least in some places. Indeed, Forbes offers a list of cities where the recession is easing, based on data from the 40 largest Metropolitan Statistical Areas. Yahoo Hot Jobs also reports on cities that are offering expected job growth in 2010. Plus, since future job growth is linked to green industries, EmploymentSpot.com looks at cities with green job markets.
The site lists the 20 cities where the recession is ending, noting that these are good places to look for a job. View the list here.
