What Indy has to Offer:

The people of Indianapolis are famous for their friendliness and generosity. Whether you need help with a flat tire, directions to get someplace or a helping hand with your groceries, Indy folks will never leave you hanging. As big as Indianapolis has become it still manages to maintain its small-town values when it comes to friendliness, hospitality, and plain old good vibes.

The overall cost of living in Indianapolis is about 12% lower than the national average, which makes it one of the more affordable cities in the country. Healthcare, groceries, and utilities are all significantly cheaper in Indianapolis, but the real whopper is the cost of housing.

Indiana’s business-friendly climate has sent the job market in Indianapolis skyrocketing, with the city ranking #16 on Glassdoor’s list of the top 25 cities for jobs. Indy is a great place to grow your career or explore a new professional path. In recent years the city has also emerged as a surprising tech hub, with many budding startups and tech companies choosing Indianapolis for their home base. Other strong industries in the city include advanced manufacturing, finance and insurance and information technology.

Indy has it all, from food, to culture, to entertainment.  Make Indianapolis your home, and come grow with St Vincent.
