Washington, D.C.

In September, job search aggregator Indeed.com compared the number of job postings to the number of unemployed people for the 50 most populous metropolitan areas in the U.S.

Indeed.com’s top five cities for job searches all have a 1:1 ratio of postings vs. unemployed.

Even with the third worst unemployment rate in the nation at 11.1 percent, Washington D.C. is one of the least competitive cities for job seekers, according to statistics.

Don’t be turned off if some of the rest claim the highest rates for unemployment. They can still be locations to consider if you’re looking for a job:
