Houston Is the No. 1 Big City for New Grads

February 8th, 2018

The website Online Degrees evaluated several large U.S. cities to determine which would be the best for new college graduates. And their number one choice was our city of Houston. So if you’ve just graduated and you’re looking for a new job, or willing to relocate for one, there are plenty of reasons why Houston and the surrounding areas would be a good choice for you. Before you make your final decision, it’s helpful to do some research for yourself to see how Houston can fit your lifestyle and career. Let’s take a closer look.

Diverse culture.

The diversity of the Houston area is something to be celebrated. You know that when you find a new job in one of our area businesses, you won’t be in a homogeneous zone with others who look or think just like you. Different mindsets and cultures help challenge ourselves out of our own comfort zone, and that’s a good thing.

Big companies.

Several Fortune 500 companies call Houston their home. Energy companies, technology companies, accounting companies, and more all have their headquarters in the Houston area. The job market is open and there are plenty of opportunities for support positions as well.

Quality of life.

There is a lot to be said about the quality of life in the Houston area. There is art and culture, music, entertainment, sports, and so much more. The weather is comfortable. Yes, there was an impact from the hurricane in 2017, but Houston is a resilient city and the quality of life was never once diminished.

Affordable living.

If you do want to move to Houston for a new job just out of college, it’s also important to consider the affordability. The median rent in the area is still under $1000 per month. There are also a variety of areas and neighborhoods where you can find just what you’re looking for, whether your preferences are urban or suburban.
