10 of the toughest cities to launch your career
According to new data from personal finance website Bankrate.com, young people consider five things when deciding on where to launch their career: social opportunities, job prospects, pay potential, career advancement, and quality of life.
By analyzing these five variables in the top 100 US cities (those with populations above 250,000 and a per capita GDP of above $40,000), Bankrate.com determined which cities most and least ideal for starting a career.
To rank the cities, each of the five variables was scored on a scale of 1 to 100 - 1 being the best and 100 being the worst - considering metrics like employment rates, average salaries, and cost of living. (Read more on the methodology here.)
