Austin has made a list of the 10 best cities to find a job.

Adecco Staffing U.S. released a list of the best cities for finding employment in the current economy. The firm compiled a list of the 10 best cities for job seekers based on employment data from the Department of Labor and internal data about job growth and demand. The ranking equally weighed a number of factors, such as the diversity of industries in the city, the range in size of companies offering employment and the cost of living.

Austin came in at number two on the list. Seattle, New York City, Phoenix and Columbus, Ohio also made it.

Bethesda, Maryland, with a population of about 60,000 and an unemployment rate of 5.2 percent, topped the list.
