Austin is the 3rd Best City to Start a Career.
As the plunge into adulthood is right around the corner for many young future graduates now is the perfect time to disclose Austins newest accolade. Austin has been named as the 3rd best city to start a career. With endless opportunities, culture and room for growth, newly graduated job seekers have ample career paths to choose from. WalletHub explains their methodology below.
"In order to determine the best cities in which to launch a career, WalletHub’s data analysts compared the 150 most populated U.S. cities across two key dimensions, “Professional Opportunities” and “Quality of Life.” Our sample considers the only city proper in each case and excludes cities in the surrounding metro area.
We evaluated the two dimensions using 23 relevant metrics, which are listed below with their corresponding weights. Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 representing the most favorable conditions for job-market entrants.
We then calculated the total score for each city based on its weighted average across all metrics and used the resulting scores to construct our final ranking."
