Young Adults Thrive in Austin

Read time: < 1 minute

Again, Austin tops another top 10 list on how great this city is. However, this time, it’s judging the city based on how good its youth-oriented job market is after a recession. One criteria that helped Austin in the poll is its large population of young professionals in their 20s and 30s. Austin’s youth population is the biggest among the 67 cities polled in the study, (probably largely due to the surplus of educated UT graduates that don’t want to leave Austin after college). The other deciding factor that helped get Austin top on the list is Austin’s ability to generate jobs. In the past five years, Austin has added 99, 200 jobs and leads the nation with the highest job growth rate of 2.8%. As home of the state’s capitol, one of the largest universities in the United States, and a thriving tech industry (Facebook, Google, Paypal, Gowalla, Apple, Dell and AMD all have large operations in Austin), it’s no wonder our job growth rate is leading the pack. One last thing to add to Austin’s desireability by young college-educated workers is the affordable cost of living. Whether you’re in your 20s or way into your 40s, anyone can enjoy that!

If you’re wondering who the runners-up are, you’ll have to read the rest of the article to find out.
