Top 10 Places to Get Ahead

Forbes Magazine did some interesting research on what areas of the US are best positioned for growth.  They compiled a list of the top 10 locations for jobs, income growth and quality of life.  With so many major cities taking a beating in this near-depression, the landscape has changed dramatically in terms of where the best prospects are for job seekers.  Cities that used to be known for excellent prospects like San Francisco, San Jose, Atlanta and others are no longer at the top of the list.  Many of the cities and towns on Forbes’ new list are not even places you may have heard of.  If you’re about to finish studies and are looking for a great place to live and work, check this list out here.

    It is amazing to me how our country changes from decade to decade. Cities that use to thrive are now is dire straits. It seems to me that these cities have “thrown all their eggs in one basket”. When you have one industry as the blood line of your city, then you are destined for failure. Larger companies, from many fields, should work together and build cities up together, by picking cities that are in dire need. It would be a great investment either way, because the property value would most likely be very low. It seems like more and more people are happy just worrying about theirself and not the future. Until this changes, many people are going to feel the affects of this dragging economy.

I have utilized the top interview questions work sheet. I have prepared my answers to these questions; being comfortable with expressing my skills and knowledge that match the necessary skills for the job relieves the stress of not having an answer to the questions the interviewer may ask. Using this method aids in focusing what the employer is looking for and my skills as the best match for the position that is being offered. I also try to draw examples from all my job experiences; this helps to point out different career skills that may separate me from the competition. Furthermore, reviewing the most popular interview questions helps me consider the work environment I desire to work in and points out areas that I am passionate about.
