Denver and Colorado Springs among top 50 cities to start a career

Posted: Updated:

Graduation season is around the corner, so WalletHub released a list of the best and worst U.S. cities to start a career in.

WalletHub researchers compared 182 cities including the 150 most populated cities in the U.S. to make the list. Two dimensions in each city were measured, professional opportunities and quality of life. 

The two dimensions were measured using 27 related factors and graded on a 100-point scale, with a 100 score being the highest and most favorable for job-market entry. Some of the factors included, availability of entry-level jobs, monthly starting average salary, commuter-friendly jobs, housing affordability, fun-friendliness, job satisfaction, and more. 

Among the top 10, Denver ranked at number eight. Colorado Springs is among the top 50, taking the number 47 spot. 

According to WalletHub, the unemployment rate for new graduates is only 4.1 percent as of March 2018, as employers plan to hire four percent more graduates from the Class of 2018 than the Class of 2017. 

The top 10 cities to start a career in for new graduates are:

  1. Salt Lake City
  2. Orlando
  3. Atlanta
  4. Charleston
  5. Tempe
  6. Austin
  7. Columbia
