Seattle remains a great choice for picking a new job thanks to continuing growth in multiple industries and an economy that encourages higher wages.

Let’s start the list off with the Emerald City. Seattle has a lot going for it when it comes to young adults looking to put their degrees to good use. As you may know, the Seattle area is where big companies like Amazon, Microsoft, and Boeing call home. The city also has higher than average earnings for those with bachelor degrees, averaging out at $52,000. Sure, it’s a little rainy, but you also have access to the seaside, a great collection of islands, and some of the hippest places on the West Coast. However, the unemployment rate, at 4.8%, is higher than some of the cities on this list.
