Any recent college graduates should have an easy time finding Houston jobs.

Bloomberg Businessweek named Houston first on its list of the Best Cities for New College Grads. Aside from creating 31,000 jobs since January, the city has a low cost of living and low unemployment rate, which are great factors for new job seekers.

Houston is home to 24 of the 57 biggest companies in Texas, including Conoco Phillips, Halliburton, and Continental Airlines. The city also has strong energy, aeronautics, and healthcare industries.

There are 61 entry-level employers in Houston, where college grads earn an average pay of $44,880 per year. In addition, the city has a cost of living index of 91.4 and an unemployment rate of 8.4 percent.
