STAT OF THE WEEK: A for Advancement

23 May

Young and looking to start your career? Look no further than Atlanta, GA.

The Big A takes the top spot in a ranking of best U.S. cities for recent college graduates. The ranking released this week by MarketWatch.com took into account starting salary levels, rent affordability and the presence of major employers (e.g., Coke, The Home Depot and Delta).

If your entrepreneurial spirit decides to stay, it’s good to know your home has staying power.

Biz2Credit recently named Atlanta No. 8 on its list of the 25 best small business cities in America. Ranking criteria included annual revenue, credit score, age of business (in months), cash flow, debt-to-income ratio, incorporation (C-Corp or LLC versus sole proprietorship) and business owners’ personal credit scores.

Just be careful if moving up in your profession or industry requires a lot of moving around town. Atlanta ranked behind only Houston for having the least courteous drivers in the U.S.
