Atlanta Ranked As Best Place For College Graduates To Start A Career

Atlanta, Georgia, is the best place for college graduates to begin their careers, according to a new survey from WalletHub.

The personal finance website recently compiled a list of the best and worst cities to begin careers based on 26 key metrics, including the availability of entry-level jobs and housing affordability.

Out of the 182 U.S. cities examined in their survey, WalletHub determined that Atlanta was the number one place to begin a post-graduate career. 

Atlanta scored in the top 10 for both professional opportunities and quality of life, leaving it with the highest score of 66.87. Orlando, Florida came in second place followed by Salt Lake City, Utah, Columbia, South Carolina, and Tampa, Florida.

As noted by Fox 5 Atlanta, WalletHub has previously praised Atlanta, ranking it one of the best places to retire in the country last year.
