Oklahoma City has everything a prospective employee could want: OKC is thriving under a strong economic climate, diverse industries and low tax rates, which give our businesses the opportunity to grow and expand. And this means, in turn, there are great job opportunities for you.
The success of our region's economy and a stable unemployment rate did not happen overnight. For years, Oklahoma City has worked for widespread quality of life improvements and self-investment. The massive scale of our public improvement projects, along with first-class business and cost environments, have helped stoke our red-hot economic engine and propel Oklahoma City forward. In addition, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports Oklahoma City has had one of the lowest unemployment rates in the entire country for many years.
But we don't want to take all the credit for our strong job climate: Greater Oklahoma City is full of large, steady and philanthropic employers offering highly competitive wages and strong benefits. Corporations like American Fidelity Assurance Group, Chesapeake Energy Corporation and Devon Energy have been recognized nationally for their workplace environments and they join other corporate entities such as The Boeing Company, INTEGRIS Health, Hobby Lobby, Paycom, Dell, Northrop-Grumman, Continental Resources, MidFirst Bank, Sonic Corp. and more that either are headquartered or have a significant presence here in Oklahoma City.
If you are moving to OKC because of a job, get ready to enjoy all this city has to offer. And if you’re looking for one, we have all the resources you could need to help get one. And, with many strong, stable employers and a low unemployment rate, you won’t be looking for long.
