Determining the best geographical location to work requires taking into account a few factors, most importantly the unemployment rate of a place, the median income, and if the area is a hub for the type of work that you are looking to do.

To answer this very question, Zippia survey thousands of workers along with looking at data from BLS and the American Community Survey to see which states are the best for job seekers.

Per Zippia, it’s not California or New York that provide the best opportunity for workers.

Here are the 10 best states to find a job in 2019, according to Zippia. Chances are number one has never crossed your mind.
