Of course having moved here a few years ago I am not surprised by this ranking.

I was just reading this on CNBC. Its really not surprising to those of us that have relocated here from more expensive areas.

Buffalo is also ranked the 31st best place to find a job ...........

........... which may not be great but far from the horror stories you hear from some.

Interestingly, Rochester is 39th. So, WNY seems to be doing well in that regard.

31st and 39th out of the 50 largest metros isn't terrible, but it's nothing to get too excited over. We're still in the bottom half. It is interesting that Rochester is behind Buffalo, as many folks seem to be under the impression that Rochester is the place to find a job upstate. I personally commute from Rochester to Buffalo for work.

I wonder what the rankings would be if they expanded to the top 100 metros? I know that Syracuse has been gaining jobs in recent months too. I did notice how both areas shown improvement, while many, if not most of the other metros have shown a decline.
