What city/region has the most opportunities in manufacturing?
I'm from Europe and I've seen that my company and other German companies have some operations in South Carolina (Spartanburg area). I've been there but I want to know what other regions have more opportunities (for an engineer) and are nice places to live!
Here in Germany or even northern Switzerland where I live there are a lot of opportunities in the field in almost every city. What American city has the most to offer for a mechanical engineer, industrial engineer or a manufacturing engineer?
Thanks!
