Winston-Salem is one of the top cities for young professionals in the IT industry, according to a new ranking by Right Click, an online newsletter of Verizon focusing on technology news and guides.

Winston-Salem is ranked 3rd on the list of the best cities in the U.S. for young IT professionals, which noted the city’s business and arts scene, along with the presence of Wake Forest University.

Quote:
This small-but-mighty-city is known for its colonial history, diverse business community and vibrant arts scene. The Wake Forest University campus is located just a few miles from downtown, where it serves as both a research hub and a launch pad for young professionals. Winston-Salem historically thrived on tobacco and textile manufacturing but has embraced the 21st century’s tech-forward momentum. Today, it offers IT professionals an exciting place to live, high comparative salary and affordable living.

I am really loving the emerging Baily Park and Power Plant scene. It is becoming the epicenter of the City.

I saw this a few days ago, earlier...the site ranked 542 cities. Data on the top 100 are listed on the Right Click site. I sure wouldn't have expected Savannah to be #2. Not as surprised to see San Antonio #1 though.

I work in this area, and the transformation from just a few years ago is amazing. And there are many more projects in progress or on the books. It's great to see such a formerly run-down area getting a nice makeover.

Cool! Hopefully, this will translate into many more sustainable IT jobs for people, not just transplants, but Winston-Salem natives. It'd also be nice if these positions create economic growth in sectors outside of service jobs as was the case back when RJR and Wachovia were the economic center of the city.
