Your weekly Houston economy cheerleading fix is here in the form of a list from MSN ranking the best cities in the country for recent college grads to flock to.
Houston came in first on the list for solid job growth, “creating more jobs than any other major U.S. city,” decent average rent prices, and an average salary for recent grads that is livable.
The only other Texas city to make the list was Austin at #3, noted for its excessive sunshine — 300 days out of the year — and an average rent of $968.
New York City is nowhere on this list, Lewis Black.
Rounding out the list’s 10 best cities are:
10. Minneapolis / St. Paul
5. Washington, D.C.
