There's plenty of opportunity for business graduates to find employment in Sacramento.
That's a huge reason why California's capital ranks in the top 10 of a survey's top U.S. cities for business and finance graduates to move to.
▪ Unemployment rate
▪ Number of job openings per 1,000 in a business or financial occupation
▪ Average cost of living and hourly wage
A closer look at Sacramento shows that the city is third on the list with an 8 percent vacancy rate in business and finance positions. Also, it is 16th in cost of livability because, on average, the target candidates would have 59.1 percent of their income for discretionary spending.
Sacramento's knock on this study is its 10.5 percent unemployment rate, which is 30th among the cities highlighted.
Other California cities included on the list are San Diego (sixth), Los Angeles (16th), Riverside (17th) and San Francisco (26th). Washington, D.C. is No. 1 overall.
The study uses data from the U.S. Census Bureau, IHS Global Insight and Numbeo.
