Though the economy is picking up, it is still a rough time for many workers in the U.S. While the unemployment rate has fallen to 7.3 percent, down from a high of 10.0 percent in 2009, unemployment and underemployment are problems for many people. Jobs are a big topic for consumers, and they want to know where will the jobs be. Certain places have more opportunities for employment than others, so NerdWallet crunched the numbers to find out where they are.
