D.C. Is The Best Place For College Grads (Who Embrace Stress)

[Victoria Pickering]

Take note, graduates: you can get a job here in the District but it might make you lose your hair, drink a lot and generally panic. The good news is that Movoto has ranked D.C. the best city for recent college graduates due to the low unemployment rate, high median salary and tons of government jobs. However, it's those government jobs (and non-government jobs) that lead to D.C. being the most stressed out city in the country. D.C. residents log a high number of work hours per week and on average spend over thirty minutes getting to those jobs. This will be your life in D.C., college graduates. This Town!
