Hot-lanta! The average entry-level salary is $43,000, which Homes.com says is 21 percent above the national average. And while it’s still not as high as those in Boston or Washington, D.C., living in Atlanta costs only half as much. The median rent for a one-bedroom apartment is $800. There are plenty of good, well-paying jobs in the Georgia capital, as Atlanta “holds the third-largest concentration of Fortune 500 companies” that include Coca-Cola, The Home Depot, Delta Airlines and UPS. And the city also provides young grads with opportunities to continue their educational endeavors, with 19 nearby colleges and universities. Peachy!
