Job opportunity diversity

One of the strengths of the Oil Region is the diversity of the job opportunities our market offers.

Historically, manufacturing has always been a prominent industry here, reflecting the highly skilled and motivated labor supply.

Private sector employment services and retail are also very prominent. With tourism as the second largest industry in the state after agriculture, the hospitality industry is a major employer, as are careers in healthcare and education.
