Seattle is #16 on Forbes' ''Best Places For Business and Careers"

There is also a projected annual job growth of 1.7 percent

With the likes of tech giant Microsoft, online marketplace Amazon and Expedia, Seattle's IT industry is doing extremely well with over a $100K in jobs attributed to IT. Furthermore, Facebook also has an office in Seattle, which is actually one of its biggest engineering offices outside its headquarters in the state of California.

I guess it should be pretty obvious that Seattle would make it on any given list that highlights some of the great American cities and how they are helping in shaping the American economy, but I felt that a Forbes list that featured the Emerald City should be mentioned on this blog. So it’s just to draw attention to the greatness of Seattle’s economy that is pretty diverse although the first thing that people think of is IT and tech jobs.
