With rapid job growth and excellent salaries, applications developers enjoy outstanding job security. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statics predicts that the number of applications developer jobs, among other software developer jobs, will skyrocket over the next decade, with a growth rate of 22%.

About Working in Washington, D.C.

Looking for the cosmopolitan city life? Washington, D.C., has it all—combining history, politics, and culture to generate a distinctively energized metro atmosphere. And there's much more to the nation's capital than governmental concerns. Locals will tell you how well-developed the city is, with high-caliber museums (and architectural feats within and bordering the National Mall), loads of restaurants to satisfy any true foodie, convenient public transportation, and opportunities for green-space adventures in national and state parks right outside the urban core.

Washington, D.C., jobs are also expected to grow by 33.7% in the next 10 years (a faster rate than the U.S. average of 33.5%), so now's a great time to make a career move. Cost of living is higher than the national average, but that isn't unusual, given the nature of the location (and you're likely to find a higher-paying job here as well). Additionally, employment and housing possibilities are plentiful in the greater D.C. area, with headquarters for various businesses, corporate sprawls, and government contractors. So you may want to explore nearby Alexandria in Virginia and Bowie, Rockville, and Annapolis in Maryland for further job openings too.
