With job creation continuing at a snail's pace, some job seekers are finding that it pays to go where the jobs are. But just as some states were hit harder during the recession than others, the opposite is true in the current rate of economic recovery and job creation. Or to put it another way, some states are adding jobs faster than others.
That's true of individual sectors, as well. For example, 18 states are forecast to lose thousands of government jobs during the 12 months ending next June, but many of those same states are expected to add thousands more jobs in education and health services, according to recently revised data from Moody's Analytics (via USA Today).
