Best Places to Work for in CO

Judging by the unemployment rates, it looks like Colorado is one of the areas with the lowest rates around the United States of America. With around 170,000 unemployed people spread around the state, Colorado has an unemployment rate of 6.1%. It also seems to go down with about 0.1% on a monthly basis. On the other hand, the national average goes up. It is currently at 6.7% and grows with 0.1% per month. From this point of view, this is one of the best rated states among young graduates.

There are a lot of different industries operating in Colorado, hence the low unemployment rate. Airline and flight engineers and pilots are some of the most hunted positions. There are about 2,500 job positions throughout the state and they are well paid too. Computer hardware engineers are even more popular among employers. Unfortunately, they are not as attractive for potential workers. Finally, telecommunications, interior design, system software development, application engineering and sales represent a few of the most popular industries around too.

Aside from having a low unemployment rate, Colorado also has a few front running companies that gather together hundreds of thousands of employees. Plus, they have more divisions, so there is something for everyone out there. Some of the top employers in the area include Ball Corporation, Qwest Communications Inc., The Western Union Company and Newmont Mining Corporation, with around 10,000 workers each. On the other hand, DISH Network Corporation and First Data Corp. are not to be ignored either.
