Millennials seeking a job in Arizona may find it best to scope out Chandler and Scottsdale, according to personal finance website NerdWallet.

Both East Valley cities topped NerdWallet’s new list of the best Arizona cities for millennial job-seekers.

NerdWallet cited Chandler’s high-profile technology firms such as Intel Corp. (NYSE: INTC) and high wages for its top spot on the list. But cultural draws such as unique restaurants and downtown Chandler’s farmers market also factored into the city’s top placement.

Similar reasons were given for Scottsdale’s placement on the list.

“Near Phoenix, in Maricopa County, affluent Scottsdale is known as a destination for shopping, nightlife, restaurants and hotels. Tourism is a major driver of the city’s economy, in addition to health care, biotechnology and financial services,” NerdWallet wrote about the swanky suburb.

The website also highlighted Scottsdale’s cultural draws including its western-style boutiques, as well as its high average annual wages.

Tempe, Phoenix and Flagstaff rounded out the Arizona millennial job-seeker list.
