Top 10 Cities for Recent College Grads

Top 10 cities for college gradsGiven the nation's weak labor markets, it's not surprising that many recent college graduates are still looking for work. Further, the inability to find that first job after college may push some young Americans to consider relocating to a different city in search of better opportunities.

It's probably not surprising therefore that major U.S. cities top the list of the fourth annual Top 10 Best Cities for Recent College Graduates, according to Apartments.com and CareerRookie.com.

The websites used data about the concentration of young adults ages 20 to 24, the inventory of entry-level jobs and the average cost in March to rent a one-bedroom apartment to compile their 10 Best list.


"There are almost three times as many renters moving for new job opportunities this year than in 2010, according to our annual moving survey," Apartment.com's Tammy Kotula says in a statement releasing the latest rankings.

"This tells us that the economy is improving, but people are relocating as a result," she says. And that adds more pressure on new grads to find the right place at the right price, even as they seek to jump-start their professional lives.
