INDIANAPOLIS (Inside INdiana Business) – As college graduates prepare for life after school, two cities in Indiana rank among the best places in the country to start their careers.
The financial planning website SmartAsset identified the cities including No. 8 Indianapolis and No. 20 Fort Wayne.
The list is based on three criteria: jobs, affordability, and fun.
According to SmartAsset, six cities are in the top 10 in the Midwest, with Cincinnati at the top of the national total. Neighboring Louisville is No. 10.
The website states that job scoring is based on overall unemployment rate, income, and the number of job advertisements on Indeed.com. The fun factor was the focus on entertainment and dining, as well as the Yelp results.
The affordability scores were based on the average monthly rent and cost of living.
