Seattle and SF will suck up all of that high pay with expensive rents and costs of living.  And driving in both is a nightmare as is parking.

Washington DC ? LOL...One of the worst crime rates in the country, and that's not counting the politicians who work there.

The best place to move is where you can find a good job.

Sure, all you have to do is put up with the chaos, commutes, and 60-80 hour work weeks! No thanks.

Boston is far too expensive for a new grad and Atlanta is, well... a unique experience. Like visiting a different continent.

Austin, hire a dozen illegals and live like a king......

I live in Austin, and it is not an easy town to find work in, if you are over 40.  I do have a college education, but the competition is fierce.  The cost of living here is almost up there with California as well.  It is a good city for a cultured city life as well as outdoor activities, but once again....Even finding work as a receptionist/admin. assistant can be difficult.  Be prepared to be in line with about 500 other recent college grads for one position.

what are the degrees they got?
how many jobs are in the market for said degree?
what is living cost?
these cities how up in every single "the best" list that MSN comes up with and i'm starting to get the feeling they don't do any actual research. they just rearrange these cities

Follow the money to the end of the rainbow… Where is that?  Washington DC of course.  Where else would all this free money the Fed has been printing go?

Obamaville - where it really sucks to be young, educated and employable.

Not many good choices among the Top 10. I've either lived in or spend considerable time working in most of these cities. Before you recommend any of them, you should have to live there. Most of them totally suck. Very high cost of living, congestion, terrible weather, crawling with lib-tards. Not much to like, really.

If its away from Mommy and daddy they wont make the move.

The media should all be exported!

P R O P A G A N D A at its best usurping of reality

75% cannot find JOBS because there are NONE.

ILLEGALs, gambling, marijuana, HOMOs are the USA's GNP and GDP!

No other nation!

Every city on the list is a liberal-progressive center of commerce.  Eat dirt Republicans!
