According to a recent report, the city of Tulsa ranks number two of the top ten best cities for young people to find employment. The Fiscal Times reported that the city is high on the list for a number of reasons. There is no doubt that right now the region is struggling to find jobs (as is most of the country.) Many young adults, including those out of college, are finding it more difficult than ever to find positions in a very limited job landscape. The Tulsa job market, though, may be a better place to be.
According to the Fiscal Times, the unemployment data for those aged 25 to 34 helped the city to do well. The company states, "It looks like this famed oil capital is continuing to see prosperity. Tulsa beat the national average by nearly six points, clocking in at just 4.5 percent unemployment for 25 to 34 year olds and just 6.2 percent in the grater area. Privately funded local initiatives have helped put this city at the top."
