Minneapolis Job Scene

Minneapolis, Minnesota conjures images of ice, snow, and frigid temperatures. But the truth is, these conditions are responsible for exceptional recreational activities because of the dry snow, which reaches average depths of 6 to 10 inches. A fun place to live – AND a great place to work!

This majestic city encompasses 16 lakes and boasts an incredibly beautiful landscape throughout the year. Initially known for its lumbering industry, Minneapolis is now well-known for its high-technology firms and the growing demand for high-tech employees. This makes it particularly attractive for young people interested in building a career in technology.

There are several colleges and technical schools located in the region which produce highly trained scientists, engineers, and other technology experts. The University of Minnesota contributes to the area's success. There are more than 1,300 high-tech firms in the city, which is one of the highest concentrations of high-tech jobs in the country, therefore, local schools still do not educate enough people for the jobs in Minneapolis to be filled.

High-tech, computer and data processing companies are continually seeking highly qualified, skilled employees. They offer a variety of job opportunities including computer programmers, analysts, technical writers, and other technical employees.

The increased need for workers in the field of technology has resulted in population growth in other areas in Minneapolis. Individuals experienced in finance, engineering, management services, publishing, and printing are in high demand in this rapidly growing city.

The financial sector is especially appealing since Minneapolis is considered part of the financial center of the upper Midwest. More than give major financial institutions are located in the region along with the headquarters of the Ninth Federal Reserve District Bank. Financial institutions have a major impact on the Minneapolis economy and there is an ongoing recruitment effort for employees in banks, savings and loan companies, insurance companies, and other financial companies.

The high-tech and financial sectors have drawn more people to the region and this has subsequently increased the need for employees in other areas, including healthcare careers, construction, education, social services, transportation, and retail. Manufacturing also has a long history in the Minneapolis region. Some of the primary manufacturing areas are electronics, machinery, medical products, food processing, and graphic arts. As a strong-hold for the manufacturing industry, there will always be opportunities for qualified workers in manufacturing.

Minneapolis was cited as one of the Top 20 Best Places to Live in America in 2005 by With this distinction to its credit, and the economic diversity and array of Minneapolis jobs available, Minnesota is an excellent place to live and work.

And with the region having one of the lowest costs of living among the 25 largest cities in the U.S., its time to look seriously at the opportunities!

Rural Physicians In Demand

Strong demand to fill physician jobs in rural areas of the United States continues to plague the nation. According to the National Rural Health Association, just one out of 10 doctors practices in rural areas, where one-fourth of the nation's population lives.

But this can be good news for the physicians themselves.

There is an ongoing myth that physicians in rural America are not as well trained as doctors in larger metropolitan areas. But this is definitely not true – all physicians are equally well trained, required to maintain licensure, and required to keep up with medical advances to maintain certification.

The financial compensation for physicians in some areas may not be as high as in larger metropolitan areas, but the proportionate cost of living mirrors the economics of the region, and physicians fare well from a monetary standpoint. There are also other financial incentives and non-financial rewards for becoming a rural doctor.

Physicians may be wise to choose work in rural areas for many reasons:

Many rural physicians are able to negotiate attractive sign-on bonuses or annual financial incentives for long-term commitment to a community. General practitioners are in highest demand and specialists are less likely to be attracted to rural regions.

With more than 50 million people living in rural areas and these numbers growing, the demand and crisis for physicians in rural areas will continue. This creates opportunities for doctors who are looking to establish a much-needed practice in areas where their medical skills are highly valued and rewards reach far beyond medical care.



Las Vegas Employment Booming

Synonymous with gambling and a glamorous night life, Las Vegas is well known for its tourism industry and for being an entertainment mecca of the world. But Las Vegas has much more to offer than entertainment and gaming.

As a major center of financial, business, and services, the city has effectively parlayed the entertainment capital into a mega city for job-seekers. An extremely diversified economy offers Las Vegas jobs in many areas of business and the benefits of living in one of the most exciting cities in the world is a great "plus."

Entertainment and tourism are obviously critical to the city's economy, brining more than 37 million people annually to visit the city. Visitor's spend billions of dollars annually and over 20 percent of jobs in the Las Vegas area are gaming related. This offers opportunities in casinos, show places, public transportation, hotels, restaurants, and other places where tourists frequent.

In the aftermath of September 11, 2001, Las Vegas was not spared the decline in tourism that many other larger cities experienced. The city saw much of their local economy suffer as a result of decreased tourism and fewer visitors to the city. Coupled with the issues plaguing the city around attracting visitors to other areas of the city in addition to casinos, Las Vegas searched for the answer to even more economic and job growth.

And they succeeded!

Thanks to the leadership and vision for the future of this great city, jobs have increased significantly in the past few years. New commercial and residential developments began to materialize in the mid-2000’s and this created a need for more employees in construction, engineering, and interior design. The completion of some of the new development and expansion of city tourist attractions successfully drove increased population growth.

The growing population has created new demands for construction in the residential, commercial, office, and industrial areas of the city. An ongoing demand for highly skilled construction workers continues to be a need in this economically booming city.

An increase in population growth requires more jobs in the areas of service industries and financial sectors. More people also mean a need for more schools and child-care facilities. There is a high demand for employees in the educational system, including teachers, guidance counselors, administration, and maintenance personnel.

Las Vegas, Nevada has experienced phenomenal population and job growth over the past twenty years and the outlook continues to be promising. With Nevada's low taxes, it makes the city an attractive place to live with lower costs of living.

The gaming and tourism industry will continue to fuel the economy with the influx of tourists and visitors to this great city; but the financial, construction, service, and educational sectors also continue to grow. The future outlook for growth and high demand for individuals in these jobs creates a wealth of opportunities for thousands of job-seekers.

Las Vegas is a great place to live, work, and play. And remember, what happens in Vegas, continues to drive the need for even more jobs!
