Washington, DC

The Washington DC metro area, including parts of Virginia and Maryland, is home to top companies in several business sectors, which could make it a good city for young, hopeful professionals to look for a job. And it isn’t just good for those who’ve studied politics.

DC is home to aerospace giants Lockheed Martin and General Dynamics as well as Capital One Financial, Marriott International and Coventry Health Care, so even those who are still undecided about their career paths have opportunities here, and they’re comparatively well-paid too.
