Arizona

Living the Arizona life has quite a ring to it, doesn’t it? Well, you could be doing just that – and loving it, we might add.

Pack your bags and get ready to thrive career-wise because the Grand Canyon State is flourishing with job opportunities, as it boasts strong health care, government, ranching, retail, tourism and transportation sectors. Plus, the state’s economy is actually larger than those of countries like Finland and Ireland – amazing, we know! And the state is home to large employers like Banner Health, Walmart, Kroger, McDonalds, Albertsons Companies, Intel and HonorHealth.

But enough shop talk, Arizona also offers residents the works when it comes to quality of life. We are talking beautiful scenery, from mountains to cactuses to exquisite red rock and sand formations, like those that can be seen on the Red Rock Scenic Byway within the Coconino National Forest, and some pretty mouthwatering cuisine – Scottsdale alone has nearly 800 restaurants.

Plus, the area’s higher education institutions, like the University of Arizona and Arizona State, offer not only top programs, but must-watch sporting events. And if college sports aren’t enough, you might just come face to face with a player from the 15 Major League Baseball teams based in Arizona during spring training. Packed yet?
