High end - West Loop. Good moderate end - Ukranian Village, Wicker Park, and Logan Square. These options should be good for your budget and are some of the most fun places to live in the city besides the north side where it is either trust funds/finance people (RiNo) or families (Lincoln Park) in the first 2 miles from the loop

Not from the area (yet), but why no mention of River North or Old Town?

2 miles isn't giving you a lot of options. For a young person making 80K, you can afford a very nice studio apartment.

West Loop is likely a bit too old for you, unless you live in Presidential Towers or something like that. That's a great area, but you won't see too many 22-23 year olds - more like 28-35 year olds.

Old Town or Lakeview East have young people, and are nice areas. Wicker Park does as well - that's past 2 miles though.

In your shoes, I would move to Lincoln Park or Lakeview.

Likely either computer science or finance. There are a few other possibilities, but those would be the big ones.

Consulting too - I had several friends at KPMG, Deloitte, EY and PWC based in Chicago. I also know that there are a few others around here that have large workforces (Huron, monroe group, sapient, and there are probably some others). My friends all started around 70-75 and had bonuses that would put them in the low 80s first year out of school. I was also jealous that some of them got to travel around the country and get per-diems
