CAYCE, SC – NerdWallet, a consumer advocacy website, recently conducted a study to find the best cities in South Carolina for millennial job seekers – and the City of Cayce ranked number 1!
To find the best communities for recent graduates and millennials (young people from ages 22 – 32) looking to launch their careers, the company evaluated 66 cities, towns and census-designated places and examined the following:
· Percentage of millennials
· Millennial population growth
· Unemployment rate
· Average worker payroll
· Median rent
Cayce boasts the highest salaries of any place on the list at a median nearing $50,000 a year. Other factors that lead to the number one placement were the location of the City being on the Congaree River and close to the Columbia Metropolitan Airport and major highways.
