Raleigh is one of the cities that has a more positive outlook for job seekers than other cities due to a variety of factors, according to financial website NerdWallet.com. The site lists 10 cities, two of which are in North Carolina.

The cities were chosen by job availability, growth and cost of living. Raleigh was listed sixth, right after Charlotte, because it “is known for its research and development industry,” according to NerdWallet. Other qualities that got the city placed were theResearch Triangle Park tech hub, the career development center at N.C. State University and the Center for Employment Training, which provides hands-on training for vocational skills.

Here’s the list:

1. Austin, Texas

2. Washington, D.C.

3. Forth Worth, Texas

4. Denver, Colo.

5. Charlotte, N.C.

6. Raleigh, N.C.

7. Omaha, Neb.
