Good news for UT students

A recent Forbes study has ranked the top 20 cities for young professionals in the U.S., so if you were thinking of moving away after graduation you might want to reconsider.

This study includes all college-educated workers with five years of experience or less.

Factors taken into consideration include job growth, unemployment rates, pay, and cost of living.

Taking fifth place, ranked just ahead of Austin are San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Raleigh, and Dallas. Austin and Seattle are tied for fifth place.
