The professional and business services sector of the United States is not only the largest high-wage part of the economy, it is also one of the only ones that has steadily expanded since 2010, adding nearly 3 million white-collar jobs, according to Forbes.
But while that may be the sector that is doing the best in terms of white-collar jobs, which big cities are doing the best? As it turns out, not even the usual suspects of San Francisco, San Jose, or Austin can say they are doing better than the number one city on the list; Nashville-Davidson-Murfreesboro-Franklin, Tenn., took the top spot with a growth in business services employment of 7.7 percent in 2015 and growth of 47.2 percent between 2010 and 2015.
San Francisco-Redwood City-South San Francisco, Calif., was second on the list with business services employment growth between 2010 and 2015 of 45.7 percent. Austin-Round Rock, Texas took the third spot with growth of 42.3 percent and San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara, Calif., was fourth at 36.4 percent.
Dallas-Plano-Irving, Texas (28.9 percent), Raleigh, N.C. (27.9 percent), and Richmond, Va. (18.9 percent) were also on the list. For the complete list, click the link below.
