Even though more young people have been leaving New York City than moving there in recent years, it still remains the top city in the U.S. for job seekers, according to the popular employment website

As spotted by Thrillist, Monster just released its 2018 midyear jobs report based on the job postings advertised on its site. In the last year, Dallas, New York City, and Los Angeles have seen the most job growth, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics [PDF], so it makes sense that those three cities made Monster’s top 10 list.

New York City may have claimed the top spot this year, but Houston was the best place for job seekers to be in 2017. However, the Texan city fell to 10th place on this year’s list. Considering that Los Angeles didn't even appear on last year’s list, its job market made impressive strides, allowing the city to jump to second place on Monster’s list for 2018.

Here are the top 10 cities for jobs:

1. New York City
2. Los Angeles
3. Washington, D.C.
4. Dallas
5. Chicago
6. Boston
7. Philadelphia
8. Atlanta
9. San Francisco
10. Houston

Monster also released a list of the job titles that have been advertised most frequently on the site so far this year (registered nurses remain high in demand), as well as the top hiring companies.
