If you find yourself looking for a new job in 2014, and Manpower have gathered a few suggestions based on surveys of 18,000 employers across the U.S. This survey was taken to determine whether employers plan to add or cut jobs, keep employment levels the same or have yet to make a decision about either for the first quarter of 2014.

According to the survey, the Deltona, Florida metropolitan area, which includes Daytona Beach and Ormond Beach, have a net 24 percentof companies who plan to hire new staff in the first quarter of next year.

Coming in second is McAllen, Texas, near the southernmost tip of the state, which plans to add a net 23 percent of employers. One of the factors/jobs increasing the employment rate in McAllen is one that is referred to as “twin maquiladoras.” Auto plants in Mexico produce cars and then companies in McAllen inspect these vehicles and ship them out.
