If you're looking for a job in today's market, you may want to consider relocating to Austin, Texas; Denver, Colorado; or Nashville, Tennessee.

That's according to the latest LinkedIn Workforce Report, released on Thursday, which found that although overall U.S. job growth dipped in September, job opportunities abound in these locations.

"Workers are increasingly finding that there is work in other places besides just the big cities," says CNBC contributor and LinkedIn Editor-in-Chief Dan Roth on CNBC's "Squawk Box. "

In addition to Austin, Denver and Nashville, workers are increasingly moving to Charlotte, North Carolina, and Las Vegas, Nevada, LinkedIn found. Seattle, Washington, which was previously ranked the No. 1 city for attracting talent, slipped to No. 6 due to its rising cost of living and limited housing supply, Roth says.

When looking beyond location and specifically at industries, LinkedIn saw a slight dip across the board in job growth for the month of September. "In general, hiring is still strong. It just is less strong," said Roth. "We're seeing a deceleration across every industry that we measure."

According to Roth, agriculture is one of the main industries that has decelerated, with a 4.7 percent drop in hiring. Manufacturing, he says, has also seen a bit of a slow down. In the past, job growth in the manufacturing sector saw double-digit increases. But in September, job gains increased by only 3 percent.

As to whether these dips have anything to do with the increase in tariffs, Roth says, "These are both industries that have been really strong in hiring, and so to see that kind of a drop shows that something is going on and hiring managers are worried about something."

As far as industries that have seen job gains, LinkedIn's report shows logistics, transportation and energy as sectors that are still showing strong job growth. Although the economy isn't at full employment yet, Roth says the market is still good for job-seekers today, and employers are doing everything they can to attract and retain talent.

"They are doing things they haven't done before in terms of hiring older workers and raising pay," he says. "You saw what Amazon did with the warehouse workers. So it feels like full employment, whether it is or not."
