If you find that you can't get a job where you currently live, you might want to widen your job search to states that offer more employment opportunities. But, which? Juju.com recently released their Job Search Difficulty Index for U.S. States, which measures the difficulty of finding employment in each state around the country and in D.C. Each of the U.S. States Index numbers was calculated by dividing the number of unemployed workers in that state, as reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, by the number of jobs in Juju's comprehensive index of online jobs in the United States.

Simply by ordering the list from least to most difficult, we can share with you those states that offer the best chance of finding a job. Here are the top 10.

1. District of Columbia (DC)

2. Virginia (VA)

3. Maryland (MD)

4. North Dakota (ND)

5. Nebraska (NE)

6. Delaware (DE)

7. New Hampshire (NH)

8. Massachusetts (MA)

9. Wyoming (WY)

10. South Dakota (SD)
