Our friends at WalletHub did a little diggin to find the top cities to find work in 2021. Top 3 are Salt Lake, Orlando, and Atlanta. Not too bad, St Pete is at 27, Tampa at 13. No sign of Clearwater. Sorry about that.
Markets are rated on job saturation, livability, housing, and transportation options for commuters. Unemployment rates for new college grads (age 20-24) are at the “kinda stinks” level. No help from the pandemic. But April was at 10.5%.
Employers indicate they are hiring more new grads (7.2% more) in 2021 than 2020, so that’s better. Well, a little.
