CBS MoneyWatch: Top 10 Cities for College Grads

Raleigh, N.C.

Unemployment rate: 7.8 percent
Median annual income: $78,800
Average rent: 1bd, $708/mo.; 2bd, $926/mo.

Raleigh has a lot going for it. The cost of living is reasonable, the climate is mild, and the economy varied. Although nearby Charlotte hosts the majority of North Carolina's Fortune 500 company headquarters, Raleigh has plenty of opportunity for recent grads. There are three local universities for those looking for a job in education, one of the city's most popular industries. Residents looking for work in government, health care, and high-tech research also may prosper.
