worst cities for jobs

Let's face it, in this economy, it can be difficult to find a job regardless of where you live. But for residents of some cities, the sheer number of people looking for work can make finding employment just that much harder.

So just where are the worst places to find a job? Armed with data on unemployment rates and job openings for the past six months, CareerBliss combined that information with reviews from more than 14,000 contributors to its website to determine the worst areas in the U.S. to look for a job.

Including overall sentiment among workers in a particular area -- not just unemployment rates and job availability -- can help job seekers "in determining which job market is best for them," says CareerBliss CEO Heido Golledge.

Below, find the rankings of the worst cities to look for a job, shown in descending order -- No. 1 being the worst city -- based on CareerBliss' overall "Bliss Score." Most of the municipalities on this list are midsize cities, though, as CareerBliss notes, larger cities also made the list.

1. Reno, Nev.

Bliss Score: 3.39

*Score is derived from a weighted evaluation of unemployment, job openings and overall happiness of workers in a particular area.
