If you find yourself unemployed and desperately looking for job opportunities, don't panic! Colorado is ranked the best state in the nation to find a job.

A new survey released by GOBankingRates says the Centennial state has experienced double-digit employment growth over the last 10 years.

The study, which was released July 1, states Colorado has experienced employment growth of 17.2 percent over the past 10 years and 15.6 percent in the past five years. Unemployment stands at about the same rate as in the nation as a whole, 3.6 percent.

GoBankingRates compared average unemployment rates, employment growth rates, job opening data and more to determine the best states to land a job if you're out of work.

Rounding out the top five are New Hampshire, Utah, Minnesota and Idaho. Alaska was ranked as the worst state to find a job.
