OKC Ranks Among Top 15 Cities For Job Growth

Posted: Updated:

This year Oklahoma City ranks 15th in the nation for job growth according to a study done by leaders at the famous job website company, Glassdoor. 

The results were determined by weighing three factors equally: how easy it is to get a job (hiring opportunity), how affordable it is to live in each city (cost of living) and how satisfied employees are working in that city (job satisfaction).

The study reveals that Oklahoma City is one of the best in the nation for job growth, job satisfaction and affordable living.
