Plano second best city for jobs, Garland #17

According to WalletHub report, two cities from Collin County were ranked among best cities for jobs. Plano was ranked as #2 and Garland was ranked as #17.



In order to determine the best job markets in the U.S., WalletHub’s analysts compared the 150 most populated cities across two key dimensions, namely “Job Market” and “Socioeconomic Environment.” They assigned a heavier weight to the former as the factors in that category most heavily influence a job seeker’s decision in terms of relocation for employment.

They then evaluated those dimensions using 23 relevant metrics, which are listed below with their corresponding weights. Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with 100 representing the most favorable conditions for job seekers.

Finally, they calculated the overall score for each city based on its weighted average across all metrics and used the resulting scores to rank the cities accordingly.
