Charlotte would probably be one of the places to top the list of all your categories. Charlotte has a lot of young people, but also has lots of financial corporations to choose from.
However, the unemployment rate is going up there due to mass migration.

Austin sounds like your best bet.

Houston. It's economy is actually absorbing it's residents well. Austin is another place to check out. Charlotte has some potential as well, but the type of development going on there doesn't seem to be sustainable, and it seems to be particularly attracting the "miserable people" of a lot of parts of the country as the great panacea.

Austin, Raleigh, San Diego and Atlanta are some of the warm cities that Forbes ranked in its top ten best cities for singles. Not that these Forbes rankings mean much, but interestingly, Pittsburgh was ranked last.

Hackettstown, New Jersey was also ranked amongst the "Best Places" to live in America a few years ago. Since then I don't put much credence into those lists.

Stick with the cities you're looking at, especially Austin.
I recommend Denver and Boulder too.

I would scratch out Gainesville and Savannah from your list. Gainesville is certainly young, probably too young for a 28yo. Half the town is composed of college students (51,000 at UF and another 10,000+ at the community college).

Savannah is gorgeous, but it's not that big, and it's kind of isolated.

If you're a young upwardly mobile kind of guy, you'll probably want to be someplace with a big enough airport.

Austin, Charlotte and Nashville are definitely places to consider. All three are growing rapidly, particularly in your age bracket. Charlotte is a hotbed of banking jobs. Nashville and Austin, being state capitals and homes to universities, are also very white collar. Nashville also attracts a lot of young people in the entertainment industry.

If I were you, I'd take a few weekends and go visit those three cities to get a better feel for the areas. I personally would prefer Nashville or Charlotte, but I'm not you.

Good luck!
