Now, we learn that the Dallas-Fort Worth region has four of the Top 10 Best Cities in Texas for Job Seekers, again, according to NerdWallet.com.

NerdWallet.com considered several factors in determining which Texas cities were best for job seekers: Is the city growing? Do people earn high salaries? Are most people employed? U.S. Census Bureau data supported the analysis.

Here’s what the site had to say about DFW’s best cities for job seekers:

The Lone Star state has had a good year for employment. The annual job growth rate is around 3 percent, up from 2.8 percent last year. Construction is expected to be a major industry force through the end of the year, and most other industries have reported consistent job growth in recent months. Texas’s low cost of living and diversity of employment opportunities make it an obvious choice if you’re looking for a job.

No. 2 – Allen

With strong population increases in recent years and a low unemployment rate to match (5.1 percent as of April 2013), Allen is a great city for job seekers. The biggest employer is the Allen Independent School District, making it a haven for education workers. Other major industries include medicine, government work and graphic design. Allen is just 12 miles from Dallas, making it a popular home for commuters. Click here to find homes in Allen.

No. 4 – McKinney

Noted by the Census Bureau as a fast-growth city numerous times over the past decade, McKinney has seen its population more than double between 2000 and 2010. The city has a low unemployment rate of 5.8 percent, as of April 2013, and is a center for tech, medical and manufacturing companies. Major employers include Raytheon, Torchmark, StatLab and Manner Plastics. The McKinney Independent School District is also a large employer for the city. To tour luxury homes for sale in McKinney, click here.
