As part of our video series with employers and hiring managers, we visited cities throughout the U.S. to learn more about what it’s like to live there, what type of culture to expect, some of the exciting things to see or do and what sort of jobs are available. While employers are cautiously optimistic about hiring this year across the nation, certain areas are seeing more job growth in specific industries, which is getting more people to consider relocating for their career.
