Oklahoma City is among the top 25 cities for millennial job seekers
Only mere months ago I, too, was a fresh-out-of-college, millennial job seeker in OKC—but thanks to the Chamber I can now happily say I’m a millennial with full-time employment (health insurance and everything! It feels so official). My story may seem like a rarity to some (and to be fair, it would be in other parts of the country), but it isn’t uncommon in OKC. After all, we were just ranked as one of the best cities for millennial job seekers according to Jetty.
OKC’s low cost of living (8.4 percent lower than the national average), low unemployment rate (3.6 percent) and large millennial workforce (40.7 percent, one of the largest on the list) makes it a pretty attractive option for millennials seeking to enter the workforce. And that’s to say nothing about how OKC’s also been recently ranked among the top cities with the youngest entrepreneurs, cities where millennials make the most money, cities for millennial aspiring homeowners and one of the best overall cities for millennials.
