Arizona has added nearly 300,000 jobs since 2015, but it still lags among the best states in the country for jobs, according to a new analysis.

The Grand Canyon State ranks No. 27 among the best states for jobs, according to the study from personal finance website WalletHub.

That puts Arizona just ahead of Maine (No. 28) and just behind Maryland (No. 26).

Massachusetts topped the list, followed by Washington and then Colorado.
