San Francisco is this year’s best city for young professionals because of
its ability to attract and retain talent. It does this by offering long-term job
opportunities, plenty of singles and impressive starting salaries.
The City by the Bay outshined the rest of the field in attracting alumni
from the nation’s top schools. More of the class of 1998 from Harvard,
Stanford, Rice, Princeton, Duke and Northwestern picked San Francisco
as home, 10 years out of school, compared with any other metro.
These are graduates with the skills to work virtually wherever they want,
and this measure is an indicator of where high-caliber professionals have
decided to settle, based on a combination of job and lifestyle factors.
