Atlanta: 23rd Best Place for College Grads

Though the job market remains challenging, kids are still graduating from college (some 3 million of them), and they need places to move that aren't their parents' houses. The Atlantic Cities blog took a scientific approach to determining the best places for these recent grads to live and offer their services, based on metrics like, "Share of jobs in professional, technical, and creative occupations" and, "[a]verage salaries and wages for professional, technical, and creative occupations." The good news for Atlanta is that it still makes lists like this (though barely, at #23 of 25). The bad news is we were beaten by places like Trenton, NJ (#9) and Gainesville, FL (#6). (Insert Gator fans / jean shorts joke here). [The Atlantic Cities]
