Austin nabbed the #3 spot on WalletHub’s list of the Best Places to Start a Career, the Austin Business Journal reports. Salt Lake City and Orlando Florida were the only cities ranked higher than Austin.
The report looked at opportunities for professional growth as well as quality of life to determine its list. Austin was number three for population growth and number four for monthly salary relative to cost of living. Austin’s low unemployment rate also worked in its favor as well as the large number of residents 25 and older with at least a Bachelor’s Degree.
Austin came in at number 32 for “fun-friendliness”, and only 48 for workplace diversity.
