(PRWEB) April 21, 2014

Thousands of new college graduates will soon be looking to start a career, and a key advantage is knowing where to look for a job. With this in mind, Livability.com has named the Top 10 Best Cities for New College Grads, 2014. These cities not only provide many job opportunities, but they are also places that young professionals are really going to enjoy living in.

For this list of cities, editors looked at factors such as the number of 25- to 34-year-olds living in each city, the availability of rental properties, unemployment rates, educational attainment levels, use of public transportation and the types of jobs these places offer. Our editors also sought out cities that cater to a younger demographic by offering lots of recreational activities, hot nightlife and a hip vibe.

Also taken into account were the top-hiring industries, which, according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers, are: educational services; professional, scientific and technical services; health care and social assistance; and government.

“Businesses relocate for access to a talented workforce. But, increasingly, those young talents are choosing where to move after college based on livability,” says Livability.com editor Matt Carmichael. “These 10 cities are great places for recent grads, which should put them on the radar of employers looking to expand as well.”
