Study lists top 10 cities for new college grads
Albeit September, graduation is just around the corner for many anxious seniors looking for a budding career post-UCF. But with cap and gowns slowly creeping up as a necessary purchase, what exactly comes after that symbolic walk across the stage?
A new study conducted by Livability.com may not have all the answers as to what exactly college grads can do with their degrees, but it does have an idea of the best places to do it. In the study, the marketing research company listed the top 10 cities for new college grads. The list was based off of several factors including the population of 25 to 34-year-olds in the city, unemployment rates, rental vacancies, rental costs, public transportation, nightlife, levels of education and the amount of non-service, "better-paying" jobs, the website states.
The site also factored in the top-hiring industries, such as health care, social assistance and technology.
The top 10 list didn't include any Florida cities, but it did include cities in nearly every region of the country.
The cities are ranked as follows:
10. Mountain View, California
9. Naperville, Illinois
8. Fargo, North Dakota
7. Ann Arbor, Michigan
6. Hoboken, New Jersey
5. Minneapolis, Minnesota
4. Bethesda, Maryland
3. Austin, Texas
2. Bellevue, Washington
1. Cambridge, Massachusetts
