The 4 happiest cities to work in right now

Finding happiness at work can be a little tricky so Careerbliss put out a list of the happiest cities to work in right now. They were chosen based on compensation, work environment and opportunities for advancement, just to name a few. Kristina Guerrero and Jared Cotter picked four of their favorites from the list.

4.  Cincinnati, Ohio

The Queen City is headquarters for 10 Fortune 500 companies including household names like Macy's, Kroger and Procter and Gamble. Workers are happy because the average $52,000 a year paycheck stretches farther in Cincy, where the average house costs almost $60,000 less than the national median.

3.  Portland, Oregon

The City of Roses is home to consumer favorites Nike and Colombia Sportswear. One thing making people happy is the lack of sales taxes. There are some serious tax business credits that make Portland an irresistible city for entrepreneurs.

2.  San Jose, California

Big tech means big money. The average salary here is $82,000 a year. Getting that Google money seems to be the real key to happiness.

1.  Santa Clara, California

Another huge tech city, the average salary is a whopping $97,000 a year. That's enough to put a smile on most faces.
