SmartAsset found the 10 U.S. cities with the best career opportunities.
To find the best cities in the country for career opportunities, we considered data across seven metrics: unemployment rates, change in total employment, median income, income growth over time, annual housing costs, the number of career counselors and the number of higher education teachers. For more details on how we came to our results, see the Data and Methodology section below.
Provo and Logan, Utah, topped the list, despite their comparatively low median incomes. The two university towns ranked well due a combination of low unemployment rates and costs of living. The cities were followed by College Station, Texas, Huntsville, Ala., and Boulder, Colo.
