Job-seeking grads embrace the obvious

Dan Abendschein Jun 4, 2014

Here’s some shocking news: San Francisco is tech central for recent grads;  New York has finance nailed and DC is the top spot for budding policy wonks. That’s according to LinkedIn, which has mined its own data and put together the top 10 cities for new graduates. But not everything in the survey is painfully obvious.  

  • Minneapolis/St. Paul is a magnet for corporate types, who can stand the cold. Target, General Mills and Cargill are all head-quartered there  
  • The Twin Cities and Chicago attract more graduates than San Francisco. 
  • Bangalore is the Silicon Valley of India, with lots of homegrown students flocking there for tech jobs.
