If you’re looking for a new job, concentrate your search in Florida.
That state is home to five of the 10 hottest labor markets in America, according to a new Bizjournals study. Cape Coral-Fort Myers holds first place in the national rankings, while Sarasota-Bradenton, Orlando, Lakeland and Miami-Fort Lauderdale are also in the top 10.
Bizjournals uses a nine-part formula to analyze the employment situations in the 100 major markets. The current ratings are based on midyear data compiled by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, covering the period from 2001 to the current year.
Except we live in Massachusetts.
