    Last week, the EACC hosted its first Young Professionals Happy Hour of 2016 at Taft’s Ale House.

    Young professionals gathered to network, connect and enjoy a drink in good company.

    Attendees represented a range of EACC member companies including GKN Aerospace, VonLehman & Company, BDO, Givaudan, LOGOMAT automation systems, US BankSnecma, Krauss-Maffei Corporation, Procter & Gamble and GE Aviation.

    The EACC YP Leadership Committee looks forward to networking with current and prospective EACC members at the next YP Happy Hour scheduled for Wednesday, May 18 at Habits Cafe in Oakley (click here to register).

    Young Professional networks, such as the growing network offered by the EACC, underscore Cincinnati’s appeal among young professionals.

    As recently reported by Cincinnati.com, Forbes ranked Cincinnati #15 on its annual list of “The 20 Best Cities for Young Professionals.” The rankings are based on job growth, unemployment rates, pay and cost of living in America’s 100 largest metro areas.

    Additionally, NerdWallet recently ranked Cincinnati #20 on its list of "Best Cities for Recent Grads 2016", as reported by the Cincinnati Business Courier.

    According to NerdWallet, 19.9 percent of Cincinnati’s population is between the ages of 20 and 29 years old and 34.6 percent of the city’s population over the age of 25 has a bachelor’s degree or higher. Rent costs about 18.7 percent of a college graduate’s income and the median earnings for a resident 25 or older with a bachelor’s degree is $41,495. In addition, 39.3 percent of the city’s jobs are in management, business, science or the arts, while unemployment sits at 4.3 percent.

    Like Forbes, NerdWallet surveyed the 100 largest U.S. cities.
