Guide to Top US Metro Areas: Boston
Boston¹s brainiac tradition, both in education and in medicine, is leading the city to seek its 21st century fortune not in tea but in tech - as in medtech and biotech. Typical are companies like Palomar Medical Technologies, which makes cosmetic lasers, and Aspect Medical Systems, which makes brain monitoring systems. Both make products that are ultra nouveau.
Boston has not one, but two Best Hospital Honor Roll winners (more than any other city except for Los Angeles): Massachusetts General and Brigham and Women’s.
If you want a job with high growth potential – and you can understand or even love a Boston accent (think CarTalk, the public radio series) - this is your city.
