Forbes: Rochester is the best city to find a job

- Rochester, NY (WROC)-  A new Forbes article out today says Rochester is the best city to find a job in 2015.  It cites data from the Manpower Group which found that Rochester has the best employment prospects in the nation this  summer.  The study found Rochester's manufacturing and health care industries are booming.  Rochesterworks officials aren't surprised.

"We've been very resilient," said Rochesterworks Executive Director Peter Pecor.  "Although we had a major recession, our area wasn't hit as hard as other areas. Basically, we had our recession a few years back with the downsizing of Kodak and Xerox.  "So, we've been really resilient in this area."

The Forbes article says Rochester has a net employment outlook of 35% for the upcoming quarter.  That's the percentage of employers who plan to add jobs minus the percentage who plan to cut jobs.
