NerdWallet, a consumer advocacy website, recently conducted a study to find the best places for job seekers in Georgia. Hinesville was ranked in the top 10.
Thirty-two of the state’s largest cities were evaluated based on median household income, monthly homeowner costs, population growth of those ages 16 and older and unemployment rates. NerdWallet ranked Hinesville as the ninth-best place for job seekers in Georgia. The town experienced a 10.9 percent population growth between 2009 and 2011, making it one of the fastest-growing cities in the state.
Major employers include Liberty Regional Medical Center, Fort Stewart and SNF, Inc.
“Hinesville is one of the best places for job seekers in Southeast Georgia,” NerdWallet analyst Annie Wang said. “Local institutions such as the city library offer online resources such as tutorials, job directories and resume builders for those looking for employment.”
