Every New Year, we like to make resolutions. We like to set new goals, make life changes and have a fresh start. The New Year is the perfect time to make career moves and seek for a new job. As a recent graduate, finding a job is my main priority.

Due to the strengthening of the economy and various positive hiring trends, ZipRecruiter an online job search site named 2017 “ The year of job seeker.” These cities mentioned are the places where people searching for a job have the greatest advantage and the best industries in that city. Some of these places might not be first on your list, but hey a job is a job, right?
