When they think of Modesto, many people immediately recall the film "American Graffiti," which takes place in the city.Modesto isn't the best town for beach lovers, since it is a couple of hours away from the coast. It does have pleasant weather, however, and the lush farmland around the city gives it a laid-back feeling.

Seneca, Del Monte Foods and Stanislaus Food Products are also major employers.Modesto also welcomes those whose job preferences fall outside the realm of manufacturing and agriculture.

The less than ideal employment situation in Modesto has given rise to many of the city's inhabitants having to face a long commute to get to work. Modesto ranked 25th on City-Data.com's list of "Top 101 cities with largest percentage of workers with very long commute times (90 or more minutes) (population 50,000+)."

Modesto Cost of Living

For some job seekers, the relatively low cost of living in Modesto (which is slightly above the national average) may make commuting a long distance to work worth the time and effort. This is especially true for those whose employment takes them to San Francisco, which, according to bestplaces.net, has a cost of living that is almost two and a half times greater than the national average.

Modesto is indeed a modest city, but skilled job seekers who know where to look can find stable employment there and enjoy the area's natural beauty.
