Austin Named No. 1 City for Job Seekers in New Report
Austin topped a new list of "Best Cities for Job Seekers" published by NerdWallet.com, an online personal finance site. The capital city beat out many other Texas locations as well as larger cities across the country for the number one ranking on the list.
Austin's high population growth rate and low unemployment rate lead to the top ranking honors. Other factor used in the ranking of over 26 cities across the country included cost of living as well as income. NerdWallet.com predicts job seekers should keep an eye on trends for growth especially in technology related fields.
Five of the top 10 cities ranked were in the Lone Star state. Other cities that landed high in the report were San Francisco, Denver and Washington DC.
