Moving for a new job is a dicey business, and you’ll want to make sure you’re doing it for the right reasons before taking the plunge (or cross-country flight, as the case may be).

But whether you’re actively searching for a job or just fantasizing about life in an exciting, far-off city, you’ll want to take a look at where the opportunities are most concentrated.
