Exploring New Possibilities with North Carolina Jobs

During the past 20 years, the economy in North Carolina has shifted. Tobacco farmland now produces crops for innovative fuel sources and winemaking. Textile manufacturers now focus on nonwoven and engineered fabrics. Growing industry sectors in North Caroline include aerospace, aviation and military defense, biotechnology and life sciences, and automotive, truck and heavy equipment. Residents of North Carolina enjoy a relatively low cost of living and access to great schools.

North Carolina Jobs: a Brief Market Overview

According to information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the growth outlook is favorable for North Carolina careers in aerospace and aviation fields, which fit naturally with North Carolina's growing population, manufacturing tradition, and university-based research facilities. The biotechnology and life sciences sectors of the North Carolina job market are also expected to see above-average growth, according to the BLS.

Education/Career Opportunities in North Carolina

Because many North Carolina jobs thrive on specialized knowledge, education is a crucial step to finding employment. In the biotech and life sciences fields, a doctoral degree is required for many research positions, but those with bachelor's and master's degrees can find rewarding career options also. Those in the aerospace and aviation field will also need advanced training. More than 20 percent of North Carolina's residents hold a bachelor's degree or more, and information from The College Board indicates there are more than 125 colleges and universities in the state, many of which offer both online and on campus degrees.
