    That ranking, in which Charlotte placed at No. 102, came courtesy of personal-finance company WalletHub, which compared 182 cities on each’s job market (accounting for 80% of the total score) and socioeconomics (making up the remaining 20%). Thirty indicators of a city’s job-market health, including job opportunities, employment growth, monthly average starting salary, unemployment rate and median annual income, were weighed before WalletHub assigned an overall score.

    Charlotte trailed behind both Raleigh and Durham, which came in at No. 63 and No. 93, respectively.

    There is still encouraging news to be had for Charlotteans looking for a job in the new year, as scores of companies are looking to fill out their staffs across the area.

    This slideshow provides a sampling of which employers had the most local job openings advertised online as of Jan. 7.

    The data comes from NCWorks Online, a branch of the North Carolina Department of Commerce — the results have been filtered in an attempt to eliminate potential duplicate job postings, therefore additional job opportunities could be available for each employer featured.
