For most job seekers, today’s employment market is defined at best by uncertainty. The nation’s unemployment rate in November stood at 10% of the labor force, but some cities have unemployment rates much higher than that. What’s more troubling is that the index of metro areas with the worst job markets continues to stay consistent.
Job search engine Juju.com has put together a list with the cities that are the toughest to find a job. The ranking is done by surveying major metro areas across the U.S. and using that data against the volume of jobs posted online in thousands of employer job Web sites each month to determine the worst locations for job seekers.
Take a look below to see the ten cities where jobs are the hardest to find. You might be surprised to find out where they are.
