North Dakota: A Promised Land For Jobs?

Job seekers who want to stand out in the applicant pool might need to consider their geographic position. According to the government data, North Dakota has the lowest unemployment rate in the nation. In fact, the state has been looking to fill 20,000 jobs in multiple industries. 

But there's fine print with every "good deal." Just like other fast-growing cities, there has been a housing shortage and heavy traffic. In addition to that, North Dakota is not known for having the warmest winters either.

Employment projections from the North Dakota Work Force Intelligence Network (seen left) shows that agriculture, architecture, science, and transportation will have the greatest growth from 2010-2020.
