Are you trying to find a specific job? Maybe one that’s local to where you live?

Well, if you’re searching in Minnesota you’re more likely than any other state to be searching for Lumberjack. Or, if you live in North Carolina, you’re more likely than any other state to be searching for Pirate Jobs, because you know, Tar Heels are known for being pirates.

How We Figured Out This Madness

Google offers a tool called Google Trends that lets you input a search term and see how popular that term is relative to other places.

For example, search for Meteorologist and click on the map of the US to see that Arkansas searches for that term more than any other state.

So all we had to do was put several hundred search queries into Google Trends to find ones that were searched more in, say, Texas than any other state. And, like magic, the map above was born.

We’ve listed the winner for each state below along with some other potential ‘winners’ we didn’t go with on the map. Some states won wayyy to many times to count (Looking at you California, Utah, and New York), so we only showed the really good ones below.
