A number of studies have come out recently suggesting significant opportunities for people looking for work in a variety of sectors.

One recent report from researchers at Arizona State University showed that from July 2011 to July 2012 there had been 1.83 million nonagricultural jobs added to payrolls. The state that experienced the most growth was North Dakota, which added 26,800 jobs over the period, a 6.88 percent increase. On the other end of the spectrum Rhode Island experienced a net loss of 7,000 jobs, 1.51 percent drop.

The study, conducted by research professor Lee McPheters of ASU’s W.P. Carey School of Business, also showed that the San Francisco-Oakland-Fremont, California, region experienced the higher growth for city’s with more than 1,0000 people in the workforce. The area experienced a 3.46 percent increase from July 2011 to July 2012.

Other reports have given insight into job markets in specific states. The recently released 2013 Connecticut Manufacturers Register found that from May 2011 to May 2011, manufacturers in the Nutmeg State got rid of 1,522 positions, a 0.7 percent drop.
