Boston employment market better than national average

Despite gloomy news and forecasts nationally about the jobs market, the jobs market in Boston is faring much better than the rest of the country.  An August Business Journals’ report of 100 major metropolitan job markets ranked Boston as the #1 metro for jobs and said, “Boston is one of just 13 markets that have more private-sector jobs now than five years ago. Its growth rate in the past 12 months has been an impressive 2.7 percent, and its unemployment rate is a relatively low 7.1 percent.”

Another recently released report ranked Boston as one of the top cities for recent college grads who are looking for work:  an annual list of the top 10 best cities for recent college grads, compiled by and and based on the job market and cost of living in cities across the country, ranks Boston as #3.
