    If you’re in the market for a job, D.C. is apparently the place for you.

    It's easier to find a job in D.C. than in any other large city, according to a new survey published in the Washington Business Journal.

    The Journal cites a study by that measured the number of open positions posted online, and compared the listings with the city’s unemployment rate.

    Washington had an open position for every 1.2 unemployed people. Baltimore ranked fourth in the nation, with San Jose, Calif., New York and Boston rounding out the top five.

    On the opposite side of the spectrum, Los Angeles; Riverside, Calif., Las Vegas and Miami are the toughest cities to find work. In Miami there are nearly 10 unemployed people for every open position.
