The Atlanta metro area is ranked No. 6 on a Top 10 list of U.S. metro areas that are exceeding projected job growth, according to a study released early Thursday.
Dallas tops the list of 10 metro areas that grabbed the biggest share of job creation between 2014 and 2015, according to the study compiled by CareerBuilder and Economic Modeling Specialists (a CareerBuilder company). The Chicago metro area heads the list of 10 cities falling behind projections.“While the U.S. economy has enjoyed steady job growth in recent years, some cities are capturing a larger share of total job creation than others, thanks in large part to factors unique to their local economies,” CareerBuilder says in a prepared statement.

The study looks at total job growth across industries for each of the 150 most populous U.S. metro areas from 2014 to 2015. Each metro area’s actual job growth was compared to what would have been expected for that metro based on national job growth trends during that same time period.
The difference between the two measurements shows how much the metro is exceeding, matching or falling behind national job growth trends because of something unique to that metro's regional economy, CareerBuilder adds.

This is good news. I just started applying to work in Atlanta area. I relocated to Phoenix in 2007 when it was booming, and now I can't find a job to save my life! I was a teacher for almost 10 years but I LEFT the teaching field to pursue positions in Instructional Design and Technology. Are they degree friendly in ATL? I have a Bachelors and a Masters in Education, plus I am pursuing a second Masters degree.

That Miami number honestly seems wrong...here, it says Miami grew 55k jobs from December 2014 to December 2015.

Table 3. Employees on nonfarm payrolls by state and metropolitan area

For Atlanta, it was about 78k and this is all from the official BLS.
