Where are US workers moving?
When you factor in the young age and high education of most metro movers, there really is not much surprise that they want to live in multi-faceted areas. If you are located in one of these three most popular regions, then your company will probably see a greater spike in applications.
Home to 12.4% of metro movers, San Francisco, California, is the most popular city amongst Glassdoor users. San Jose and Los Angeles are also in the top five. Interestingly enough, most workers who move to these cities come from other places in California.
2. The Northeast
Four of Glassdoor’s top 10 cities for metro movers are located in the Northeast. Popular locations include Washington DC, Chicago, Seattle, and Boston. Unlike metro movers in California, though, workers seem to transfer to the Northeast from all over the country.
Texas is another largely popular place to relocate. Between the Dallas-Fort Worth area and Austin, the state accounts for 5.2% of Glassdoor’s metro movers.
Each of these locations has something unique to offer to workers. From music culture to desirable geography, this is one of the more complex factors associated with metro movers. People often have personal and unique reasons for choosing a specific location. Tapping into what makes your city unique could help your business attract more applicants.
