I recently came across an article that ranked the top cities in America where contented young professionals live.
To compile the list, the online career site Careerbliss.com analyzed thousands of employee-generated reviews from hundreds of American cities. Career Bliss is an online career community designed to help individuals find happiness in the workplace and in their career.
In their latest list, The Queen City came in 4th with a score of 3.63, beating out LA, Atlanta, San Francisco, and even Boston.
So how exactly did they get the ranking? According to the article:
“A ‘young professional’ was defined by CareerBliss to mean an employee with less than 10 years’ experience in a full-time position. They were asked to rate eight factors that are thought to happiness the most, including; growth opportunities, compensation, benefits, work-life balance, career advancement, senior management, job security, and whether or not they would recommend their job to others.
They valued each factor on a five-point scale and also indicated how important it was to their overall happiness at work. The numbers were combined to find an average rating of overall employee happiness for each respondent and then sorted by location to find which cities had the happiest workers.”
