Glassdoor: Ohio's Job Market

Glassdoor released its list of the 25 Best Cities for Jobs in 2018. To an outsider, it may come as a surprise that three major cities in Ohio were listed in the top 25 list. But to we Ohioans, this list reassures our choice to reside in the great state.

The Dispatch wrote up a report about the significance of the state within this list. Ohio is the only state with three cities listed. The Glassdoor report focuses on each city ranking them by job satisfaction, median base salary, and job openings. Below the job reports, they state the median home value in each city. The report states the following findings:

#4 Cincinnati, OH

Job Openings: 61,320

Median Base Salary: $45,000

Job Satisfaction Rating (out of 5): 3.3

Median Home Value: $160,900

#9 Cleveland, OH

Job Openings: 44,385

Median Base Salary: $46,000

Job Satisfaction Rating (out of 5): 3.2

Median Home Value: $141,100

#15 Columbus, OH

Job Openings: 54,711

Median Base Salary: $47,500

Job Satisfaction Rating (out of 5): 3.3

Median Home Value: $182,200

Each of the three cities has different strengths and weaknesses recorded in the data. Cincinnati has the most job openings of the three while Columbus has the highest home value. The job satisfaction ratings are quite similar only shaving off .1 of a rating for Cleveland.

However, beyond all of the factual analysis that could go on for days, there is one common thread that puts these three cities on this list. It is the simple fact that every community is proud to be a community within one of these cities and within the entire state of Ohio. We are all known to be very loyal and proud to live in Ohio. This loyalty is typically expressed toward one specific city rather than an entire state. We all support one another no matter what city we come from because of love of Ohio that unites us. Thus, the ratings clearly show that no other state can touch the unity of Ohio residents that is shown day-to-day in the workplace and at home. We pass this sense of love, loyalty and pride down to our children and grandchildren.
