Austin Named Top US City to Start a Career After College

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

When conducting a job search for the first time, recent graduates often focus on companies they would like to work for. This is normal, and there's nothing wrong high aspirations, but in this tough economy, recent or soon-to-be-recent graduates may want to focus on geography as well.

The survey examined growth rate, cost of living, and average salary, and determined the top 25 cities. They were, in descending order:

25. San Diego, CA
24. Philadelphia, PA

23. Cincinnati, OH

22. Louisville, KY

21. Hartford, CT

20. St. Louis, MO

19. Indianapolis, IN

18. Columbus, OH

17. Buffalo, NY

16. Boston, MA

15. Charlotte, NC

14. Pittsburgh, PA

13. Kansas City, MO

12. Virginia Beach, VA

11. Nashville, TN

10. Honolulu, HI

9. Denver, CO

8. Portland, OR

7. Rochester, NY

6. Seattle, WA

5. Raleigh-Cary Metropolitan Area, NC

4. Oklahoma City, OK

3. Salt Lake City, UT

2. San Antonio, TX

1. Austin, TX

To which I say, "Hook 'em Horns." Austin is a great city.
