Minneapolis is the 6th best U.S. city for those just out of college and looking for jobs, according to this year’s ranking by Bloomberg Businessweek.
Biggest loser? Indianapolis, which was #1 last year, but doesn’t even make the list this time around. Chicago, #7 last year, is also out of the race.
The survey, published earlier this month, compared factors such as entry-level job openings, average annual pay and cost of living. Minneapolis wasn’t in the rankings last year.
Key stats in the Minneapolis profile:
Number of Entry-Level Employers: 41
Average Annual Pay: $48,670
Cost of Living Index: 109.7
Unemployment Rate: 6.8 percent
The magazine liked the presence of Target, General Mills and PepsiAmericas, as well as the electronics, milling, machinery, and medical products industries.
