The study found that Texas offers the highest average starting salary rates in the nation, and the fourteenth highest median annual income.

Using diverse metrics including job-market strength, opportunity and average commute time, Texas ranks No. 12 among the best states to find a job.

Despite the high overall ranking, the Lone Star State came in at No. 33 in job satisfaction and No. 47 in average length of work week. To read the full report, click here.
