Allen grads don't have to venture far to find one of the best places in the U.S. to start their working lives.

MONEY ranked Allen as #2 in its list of the "Best Places in the U.S. to Launch a Career." The city offers one of the best blends of affordability and strong economic performance when compared to more than 2,400 towns nationwide.

"Launching your journey in a place ripe for growth can give you the momentum you'll need to point you toward that six-figure salary, C-suite role, or whatever professional goal you've set for yourself," note MONEY editors.

The article highlights Allen's efforts to develop economic opportunities within city boundaries, including the $1.6 billion of development that broke ground in 2017. It also applauds family-friendly amenities such as Don Rodenbaugh Natatorium, The Courses at Watters Creek and the highly-ranked Allen Independent School District.

MONEY previously ranked Allen as the #2 Best Place to Live in the U.S. and #1 Best Place to Live in the South.
