2 Alabama cities on the list of top 30 places in the U.S. to start a career
If you’re a recent college graduate, you might want to head to North Alabama.
WalletHub recently looked at the best cities in the U.S. for people starting a career. The rankings were determined by comparing 182 cities – including the 150 most populated U.S. cities plus at least two of the most populated cities in each state – across two areas, professional opportunities, and quality of life.
Included in the professional opportunities category were the availability of entry-level jobs, monthly average starting salary, annual job growth rate, and unemployment. Factored into the quality of life score were things such as median annual income, the average length of a workweek, and educational attainment.
Birmingham was ranked 27th. It scored a 10 for professional opportunities but was 99th in quality of life.
