Three Virginia areas make CNN’s "Where the jobs are" list

This year’s CNN Money list of “Where the Jobs Are” named our own Loudoun County as the number-one job-growth region of the country, with employment opportunities jumping 86 percent from 2000 to 2011.

Two other places — Prince William County and the City of Suffolk (mistakenly identified as a county) — also made the top 10.

  • Loudoun County (#1): “With its expansive fiber networks and a swarm of tech workers, it’s a major traffic hub on the East Coast.”
  • Prince William County (#8): “Prince William County takes the crown when it comes to offering enticing perks to businesses.”
  • City of Suffolk (#9): “Suffolk is located close to the Port of Virginia, and like many of the places on our list, quality of life is a big selling point here.”
