WalletHub recently completed a study of America’s Hardest Working Cities based on a wide range of criteria including percentage of population participating in the labor force, number of hours worked weekly, and the number of workers employed at multiple jobs. Of the 116 cities evaluated, Plano ranked 3rd. Why does this matter to the job seeker? A savvy job seeker knows about their prospective job market by knowing what industries are doing well, what industries are struggling, and what their competition looks like. This information can be beneficial for leveraging yourself in an interview or lend authority to your next salary negotiation. Another great source for even more detailed employment information in individual job markets is The Bureau of Labor Statistics. Take a moment to learn a little more about where you fit in to your local job market here in Plano and you too will soon be a part of America’s 3rd hardest working city.
