Milwaukee graduates onto another top 10 list

Milwaukee's made yet another top 10 list.

Last month, CreditDonkey looked at 50 of the largest U.S. urban areas and considered three factors – unemployment rate for college graduates, local wage premium for a college degree and cost of living – to determine the best places for new college grads to begin their professional lives.

Milwaukee ranked No. 10 on this list, while Indianapolis, Austin and Dallas took the top three spots.

Here's what the site had to say about Milwaukee. "Milwaukee employers are eager for young talent — so eager they've created an economic development initiative to attract and retain professionals. The city has an unemployment rate of just 3 percent for college graduates, and people with a bachelor's degree can expect to make 86 percent more than those with just a high school diploma. The city's cost of living is also a bit lower than average for a major city."
