Arkansas Careers for a Growing Economy

Arkansas consistently ranks in the top half of Forbes Magazine's annual rating of every state's economic growth potential. The state enjoys an unemployment rate lower than the national average and industries such as business, health care, education, and technology are leading an economic expansion. Corporations such as Wal-Mart and Tyson Foods that call the state home are also giving a boost to the state's economy and job markets are beginning to stabilize around metropolitan areas such as Little Rock.

Arkansas Careers on the Rise

Arkansas projects that occupational fields such as nursing, engineering, accounting, and information technology should experience good job markets through 2016 for qualified applicants. Popular Arkansas careers expected to expand during this period include:

  • Registered Nurses
  • Petroleum Engineers
  • Computer Systems Analysts
  • Accountants
  • Secondary School Teachers

Arkansas' surveys forecast that as many as 6600 registered nursing positions and 1500 secondary school teaching jobs could be added by 2016.

Let Arkansas Schools Help Prepare You for a Rewarding Career

The U.S. Census Bureau reports that about 19 percent of Arkansas' residents have a Bachelor's degree and approximately 6 percent have advanced degrees. Earning a college degree from one of the state's many colleges and universities may not only help you compete for a good career. It might make you stand out from the pack.

If you have a demanding schedule, it may be worth your while to try one of the online degree programs offered by many Arkansas schools. Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) shows the estimated mean annual salary in 2009 for an accountant in Arkansas was $52,490 and computer system analysts earned about $61,700 during the same period.
