It’s the middle of college graduation season, which brings a new crop of eager millennials looking for a job. In light of this, just published a new report that might help narrow down cities to job-hunt in.

The list, which was created with the help of Onboard Informatics, is based on cities with a population of 100,000 or more, more than 40,000 rental dwellings and a high concentration (25% or more of the total population) of millennials (adults aged 20-34).

In addition, job criteria considered included total number of jobs per capita (per 1,000 people) from’s Job Trends report and unemployment rate provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The list also took into account Onboard Informatics’ Lifestyle Index to determine the value of restaurants, bars, nightlife, and entertainment in each city.
