All you people without a job, take note: Forbes magazine has named Minneapolis the best city in the country for finding a job.

We can hear you sharpening pencils for those job application forms right now.

The magazine teamed with Ajilon Professional Staffing and came up with a smorgasbord of data points to consider: diversity of industries, cost of living, range in size of companies offering employment, and high level of education among its residents. But the biggest factor was this:

The top spot goes to Minneapolis, where the unemployment rate is 6.5%. From December 2009 to December 2010, the unemployment level dropped by .7%, indicating that an already strong market is improving.

The Top 10:

1. Minneapolis, MN
2. Austin, TX
3. Salt Lake City, UT
4. Boston, MA
5. Milwaukee, WI (sorry, cheeseheads)
6. Richmond VA
7. Raleigh-Durham, NC
8. Baltimore, MD
9. Pittsburgh, PA
