Forbes.com wrote an article today featuring Rent.com’s published list of the top 10 cities for new college grads to live in 2013. My feeling is that if you have coding skills the world is your oyster (what does that mean anyway?). That said, you may want to move to a city where some of your friends will also stand a chance at landing a decent job and be able to pay rent with some moulah left over for a social life.
So we thought we’d match up the list from Rent.com with some of the companies that are connecting with students on Readyforce in case you want to look in one of these “top ten” cities.
