CNBC recently reported that Columbia, SC ranked second in the most attractive cities for millennials.
Many millennials are still figuring out where they want to settle down, resulting in young people moving both toward and away from several major cities across the U.S.
To narrow down which cities are attracting more millennials than they’re losing, financial technology company SmartAsset compared the number of people between the ages of 20 and 34 who moved to 217 U.S. cities to the number who moved away from them, using 2016 Census Bureau migration data.
The survey from SmartAsset, reports Emmie Martin, ranks the top 15 cities that are attracting young professionals from all over the country. Seattle ranked number one, with Columbia, a rising hub for insurance and technology, following.
Of course, those who live and work in the Columbia region understand the draw. And technology is a large part of what’s changing the economic landscape of South Carolina’s capitol.
Technology recruiting companies like Core Technology Solutions — in the business for nearly 30 years — have seen consistent growth in the technology space, particularly as it relates to the insurance and healthcare sectors.
Some of our larger technology employers, like Blue Cross, Siebels, and Capgemini, continue to draw young professionals who are at the top of the IT talent pool.
And Columbia is a great place for families, with award-winning schools, beautiful resources like Lake Murray, and close proximity to the coast (Charleston is just 2 hours away).
