ND really doesn't have 'lots of jobs' it just has relatively few candidates for the open jobs it does have. [edit - the entire population of ND is 1/3 the size of Houston, and not the metro, just the city alone]

The trade-off is that most of the areas that do have open jobs also have insanely high cost of living - look at the cost of a 2BR rental in Minot ND. And that's even before considering that you're stuck in Minot.

I'd agree with Houston as the place where the strongest balance of available jobs to COL is. Like ND the climate is hell for several months, but hey, at least they have restaurants, a major airport, arts, music, etc. And if you want to change jobs down the road, there's a wider array of jobs/industry in Houston.

Oklahoma - you'd have to pay me a fortune to live there.
