NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - New Orleans has a lot of work to do to convince more people it's the best place to start a career.

WalletHub researchers are out with a list of the best places people can start careers in 2015. To come up with their list, they analyzed the 150 largest U.S. cities to determine the relative strength of their job markets. They also analyzed the attractiveness of each city's social scene and other factors that are important to job market entrants.

New Orleans ranks 113th.  The researchers say Irving, Texas, is the best place to start a career. Detroit is the worst place for career starters.
