But, let’s not forget about the hospitality and construction industries. As growth in the Mile High City continues, skilled workers in all areas of construction are constantly needed. With several new construction projects planned, general contractors and sub contractors are on the look out for talent. As a result, the Associated General Contractors of Colorado launched a new construction hiring program geared to attract and train new workers.
Likewise, the number of available Hospitality jobs in Denver currently sits at 5,440 (according to Indeed.com). Prior to opening, the Gaylord Rockies sought to hire 1200 people for numerous positions throughout the resort and convention center. Competition in both fields is high, if you are skilled in either, Denver is the place for you!
Furthermore, with companies like VF Corporation choosing the Mile High City for headquarters the Colorado economy certainly is strong and will continue to grow.
