    Depends on your skill set of course, as some industries are somewhat regional. The best thing to do is to haunt the job boards for your occupation. Most of those will list various openings in your line of work and when you see a glut of listings from one place that's how you'll know that place is good for people with your qualifications.

    There are a few things that you should consider before attempting to narrow down which particular places might be a good fit for you: 

    Number One - the United States is an extremely large country and there's an incredible amount of variety from one place to another; while there might be five or ten places that everybody is buzzing about now because the job market there is relatively better than it is elsewhere, that likely won't be the case in ten years... 

    Number Two - there's a pandemic on right now. Over 20 million people in the United States have lost their jobs since January. Even places that were doing phenomenally well before the pandemic hit have experienced lock-downs, closures, and all kinds of lost revenue. Gauging which places might be the best in terms of employment isn't something it's worth doing right now because job markets all over the country have been affected, and there's no place that hasn't been hit to some extent... 

    And lastly, Number Three - saying "I'm willing to do anything" is not helpful when you're looking for advice about where to go to find a good job. There are accountants in Alabama and Wyoming. People drive buses in Alaska and in Wisconsin. There are cashiers in Arizona and West Virginia. The same is true of people who pump gas and sell shoes, people who work in bars and restaurants, etc. 

    If you want to find out which areas would be the most promising for you specifically, you'll have to fine tune your research. Generally speaking, the fastest growing region of the country is the South - if I were looking for a fresh start I'd be thinking about a place like Nashville. But there are so many different factors you will need to consider... 

    What sort of work are you going to be doing? If you want to work as a tradesman - a carpenter, electrician, plumber, etc., you're going to need to go somewhere where there's a construction industry or where home renovations are common. If you want to work in technology doing networking or IT, you'll need to go where those positions are in demand. The same is true if you want to go into something related to business or education or medicine, etc. 

    You could move to Denver next week and it might be great for a year or two and then you'll be looking to get resettled again. Save yourself the hassle of making the wrong decision and think about what would work best for you. If you're single, then you want a place that's got a singles scene. If you've got a family, you want a safe neighborhood and good schools. Decide on your priorities, then start looking at options.
