There is a big difference between any old job and a good job. If you're looking for a good job -- defined at one that offer 30 or more hour of work per week with a regular paycheck -- head to our nation's capital. For the third year in a row, Washington, DC, is number one on Gallup's "GoodJobs" rating, which ranks U.S. metropolitan areas that have a high percentage of good jobs available to those who are seeking employment. The report was issued in 2017, but it is based on 2016 data. Find out the hottest jobs for 2017. They pay well and have WAY more openings than there are people to fill them. And not all of them require a college degree. These cities have several things in common: Quite a few are state capitals (or the nation's capital) with strong technology hubs. In addition, the top six cities have been in the top 10 rankings since Gallup began comparing the 50 most populous U.S. metros in 2014. Here are the top ten U.S. cities with the best jobs and their 2016 Gallup Good Jobs rating:

  1. Washington, DC: 54.6 percent 
  2. Minneapolis, Minnesota: 53.4 percent 
  3. Austin, Texas: 52.4 percent
