The nation’s unemployment rate in November was 10 percent, but some cities have jobless rates much higher than that. Job search engine Juju.com ranked the cities that are the toughest places to find a job based on the number of unemployed in a metro area vs. the number of jobs available.

The rankings (and rates) were determined by using government data on the number of unemployed people in each city and then divided by the number of jobs posted online in thousands of employer job Web sites and career portals.

Check out the ten cities where jobs are the hardest to find.
