The best cities in the United States for jobs include Raleigh, Kansas City, Austin and Seattle, according to the jobs website According to the site, all cities are not created equal when it comes to jobs, and these cities stand out for how easy it is to get a job there, how affordable it is to live there, and how satisfied employees are working there.

The No. 1 city on the list earned the top honor for having "a reputation for tech companies looking to flee the expensive and congested Northeast corridor, with companies like IBM, Cisco and SAS setting up shop" in the city's state, Glassdoor said. The website added that the cities that really "stand out offer job seekers what they really want: a stable career that they are happy with, and the feeling that they can get ahead and eventually own a home."
