If we held the Olympics of the Global Economies, in the event for which countries offer the best opportunities to launch your career, the medals would go to:
Gold medal to China
Silver medal to Germany
Bronze to the United States
By 2020, there will be a void of roughly 40 million college-educated workers in the global economy, according to predictions from The McKinsey Global Institute. Point being, many new graduates should consider the possibility of working abroad as they begin to launch their careers.
Here is a list of the 15 places that graduates (and those seeking career opportunities) should consider.
In partnership with brand strategy firm BAV and the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School, U.S. News & World Report compiled a list of the best countries to start a career, highlighting places with robust economies that are able to employ workers at their appropriate skill level. The ranking looked at how nearly 6,000 millennials (defined as adults less than 35 years old) scored countries on seven criteria: job market, economic stability, entrepreneurial atmosphere, income equality, innovation, progressiveness, and whether they wanted to live there. U.S. News weighted each metric equally to determine a country's overall score.
