Columbus ranked one of the best cities to find a job

Given the current state of Ohio’s economy and the long term decline of its manufacturing sector, it is easy to paint a negative picture of Ohio’s future. By dwelling on disheartening stories and statistics, we too often minimize Ohio’s successes. To help curb this tendency, today’s post highlights positive press that Columbus recently received. A couple of weeks ago, U.S. News & World Report, released a study that listed the Top 10 cities in America for finding a job. The report listed Columbus, Ohio as one of the best cities to find a job in 2009. Being the state capital and home to a large university has helped Columbus fair better than other cities. The report also points out that Columbus’ diverse economy plays an equally important role. The strength of the city’s technology, distribution and healthcare industries has allowed Columbus to remain resilient during these tough times.
