Accolades Abound in the Career Hotspot of Raleigh, NC

If you’re just starting your home-finding research, you might be noticing that many of the same cities keep popping up at the top of all the Best Places lists—cities like Seattle, Boston, Denver, San Francisco, D.C., and yes, Raleigh, NC. And while Raleigh boasts all of the perks of its larger counterparts—outstanding career opportunities, amazing amenities and attractions, top-rated public education—Raleigh also offers a much more affordable cost of living than many of these major cities. It’s really no surprise that Raleigh’s list of accolades—like #1 City for Jobs (Glassdoor), #2 Best Metro Area to Work in a Small Business (NerdWallet) or #3 Best Cities for Young Professionals (Forbes)—is becoming quite extensive!

Parks &

With short, mild winters and warm, sunny spring and fall seasons, there’s plenty of opportunity to get outside and enjoy good weather. And Raleigh offers no shortage of options, with hundreds of acres of city, county, and state parkland, and miles of hiking, biking, and multi-purpose trails. Open green spaces, sparkling lakes, beautiful gardens and fields, and scenic trails are just the beginning.


In August of 2016, Forbes named Raleigh the #2 Hottest Spot for Tech Jobs. In March, NerdWallet named Raleigh among the Best Cities for Recent Grads, and in May 2015, Glassdoor named Raleigh the #1 City for Jobs in America. With access to career centers such as the Research Triangle Park, three major universities, and a wealth of large health care establishments, the career opportunities are nearly endless.

Arts &

From museums to performing arts, boutique shopping to big-box retailers, unique local eateries to national chain favorites, Raleigh has something for everyone. Public events throughout the year provide opportunities for the community to celebrate changing seasons, holidays, or shared interests. The North Carolina State Fair draws visitors from across the state every fall. Major sports teams include three local colleges—NC State, Duke, and UNC—as well as an NHL pro sports team, the Carolina Hurricanes. And Raleigh’s bustling downtown scene even offers five unique districts complete with attractions for everyone, young to old, laid-back to high-energy.
