Orlando: One Of The Best Cities To Start A Career

If you’re looking to start a new career, where you live could go a long way towards making it a successful one. While most people just move close to where they grew up, or maybe where they went to school, others seek out cities where they have a better chance of making it, and thanks to a new study by WalletHub, we now know where those places are.

The site looked at the 180 cities in the United States, judging them 27 key factors including Professional Opportunities, like the amount of entry level jobs, average starting salary and workforce, as well as Quality of Life, like commute time, average population between 25 and 34, fun-friendliness and more.

The report names Salt Lake City, Utah, as the best place to launch a career, with a score of 67.83 out of 100. The city also tops the list for Quality of Life and comes in third for Professional Opportunities, with Orlando, Florida in second (66.33), which tops the list for Professional Opportunities.
