San Jose ranked highly as a city to find a job with a Glassdoor job score of 3.7 based on the number of job openings, 51,439, and a median salary base of $99,000, according to their estimates. Photo Credit: Getty Images

The best cities in the United States for jobs include Raleigh, Kansas City, Austin and Seattle, according to the jobs website Glassdoor.com. 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."

Glassdoor's overall job score is based on a comparison of the 50 most populated U.S. metro regions, and is evaluated based on three factors equally: hiring opportunity, cost of living and job satisfaction.
