Orlando is #9 for young professionals

An article in this week's Orlando Business Journal reports that Orlando is among the top 10 job markets for young professionals. I think this is great news, but I'm also a little surprised. I recently read Who's Your City? by Richard Florida and Orlando wasn't among the best cities for young professionals. The methodologies used to develop the two lists were obviously different. Nevertheless, it's good to see Orlando getting some publicity as an attractive location for young workers. As Maureen Brockman of the Metro Orlando EDC stated in the OBJ article, "this creative, innovative workforce is our present and our future."
