PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

If you're looking for a new job in Arizona, the Valley is a good place to be.

The Arizona Office of Economic Opportunity projects the number of employees in the Phoenix metro area will grow nearly 3 percent per year for the next two years.

"Scottsdale, Chandler and Gilbert all recognized as top cities for growth in the entire country so there's a lot of opportunity," said Ryan Naylor with localwork.com.

By next summer, employment in Arizona is expected to jump by nearly 140,000 jobs over the next two years with 83 percent of the growth forecasted to center in the Valley.

More than 2,000 jobs are available now.
