Des Moines had the fourth-most job opportunities per capita in the fourth quarter last year, according to a report released today by job search site Beyond.com, although it didn't make the list of easiest places to find employees. The report analyzes Bureau of Labor Statistics numbers and job posting and job search data on its website. Des Moines came in at No. 4 on the list of top places with the most job opportunities, and was one of five Iowa cities on the list. However, no Iowa cities made the top 50 list of easiest places to hire employees. The report says that the top industries in Des Moines that created jobs in the quarter are customer service, transportation and logistics, and healthcare and medical. The top job titles that employers need to fill are sales associates, sales managers and truck drivers.
