Atlanta Named #7 Happiest City For Young Professionals

Buyers Agent for Midtown Atlanta CondosAs I write this post, it’s the holiday season…how’s that song, “it’s the happiest time of the year….” Well it would seem that here in the ATL, we seem to carry that feeling all year long, especially the young professionals.

Atlanta Named #7 Happiest City For Young Professionals

The online career site, created this list after 38,000 employee generated reviews were done between 2011-2012. CareerBliss defines a “young professional” as employees working full time, with less than 10 years experience in that full time position.


They were asked to rate 10 key factors that affect workplace happiness —

  • Work Environment
  • Job resources
  • Compensation
  • Growth opportunities
  • Company culture
  • Relationships with boss and co-workers
  • Company reputation
  • Daily tasks
  • Job autonomy
  • Work-life balance

The study goes on to say that the young professional is more inclined to “jump jobs” than their parents if they are not happy with the work environment. (I should of taken that one to heart when I was in the corporate world….LOL!) You can find the Forbes. com article here.
