Detroit made the list! LinkedIn recently released an article based on the job search behaviors of millennials in the U.S. on LinkedIn (which make up 44% of all job searches on their network). Where is this influential group looking to work and live?

Cities with the highest annual growth in job interest among millennials:

  1. Austin, TX
  2. Raleigh-Durham, NC
  3. Detroit, MI
  4. Cleveland/Akron, OH
  5. Charlotte, NC

Over the past year, interest in mid-size cities among millennials has grown 25% faster than large cities. LinkedIn notes that these aren’t (yet) the top cities where millennials have been moving to (over the past year these cities have been Seattle, Portland, and Denver).

LinkedIn sums up this millennial trend: “As the job market has evolved, millennials have continued to thrive and adjust, and as our findings show they are not shy of changing jobs or advancing their careers in less urban cities.”

As for us, there is no surprise that more millennials are looking to join us in Detroit. It’s an exciting place to be!
