Raleigh Is 5th Top Destination for Career Professionals

Raleigh is the 5th top destination in US for career-oriented professionals, according to a new report by staffing firm Robert Half.

The rankings of 25 metros are based on 25 indicators in four general categories that influence career decisions and work-life balance: Career prospects, quality of life, cost of living and cultural diversity.

“With three well-known universities in the area, as well as close proximity to the Research Triangle Park, companies have access to a highly educated and diverse talent pool,” says Lauren Cassidy, senior regional vice president in the Raleigh-Durham area for the Menlo Park, California-based Robert Half International. “Many employers are attracted to the Triangle, and job opportunities have intensified. High tech, finance and education are major industries driving hiring in the area.”

The top four cities are Seattle, Boston, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.

This week, Raleigh was also named the fifth-best state capital in the U.S. by WalletHub, for similar reasons.

Rebecca Troyer manages the day-to-day process of delivering the daily digital content and the weekly print edition of the Triangle Business Journal.
