Looking for a new job? There's no better city in America to find one than Scottsdale.

That's according to a study from WalletHub, which analyzed and ranked 182 U.S. cities across 30 key indicators of job-market strength. Scottsdale took the top spot.

Scottsdale is home to a number of high-tech and high-wage
jobs, and continues to draw new development and jobs. In the
past year, ASU's SkySong development — which is in Scottsdale
at McDowell and Scottsdale roads — inked some big tenants, as
well as announcing an expansion. Across the street from
SkySong, there are plans to raze the aging Papago Plaza to make way for a new mixed-use project that will include new retail, restaurant and hospitality offerings.

Also, Scottsdale Fashion Square opened its multimillion-dollar luxury wing last year, adding several new first-to-market tenants that have added new jobs to the swanky suburb.

While Scottsdale is ranked as the top spot to find a new job, it's not the only employment hot spot in the Valley, according to WalletHub.

Two other East Valley cities — Chandler (No. 10) and Tempe (No. 14) — ranked in the top 25 best cities for jobs. Additional Valley cities also fared in the upper echelon of the 182-city rankings with Gilbert


An East Valley city is the best place to find a job in 2019, according to WalletHub. 

(No. 39), Peoria (No. 41), Phoenix (No. 53), Mesa (No. 65) and Glendale (No. 68) scoring well.

According to WalletHub, Scottsdale, Gilbert and Chandler all tied for the highest median annual income.
