With thousands of bright minds graduating from the area’s many universities each year, we attract some of the biggest names in knowledge-based industries to call Raleigh home.
Our residents can choose to work in a wide variety of settings and industries. While our three biggest industries are government, education and health care—we are internationally known for our thriving high-tech industries such as biotechnology, textiles, medical device, and serious games. Employment is available at high-tech entrepreneurial companies, major corporations, and a vast array of small and mid-sized companies as well.
While Research Triangle Park gets a lot of the attention, North Carolina State University’s Centennial Campus also has lured major corporate relocations and generated thousands of local jobs. Centennial Campus is a unique technology community that blends public, academic, and private sector research and is the only public-private partnership of its kind in the U.S.
All of this economic success pays off for our residents—literally. Our residents enjoy some of the highest effective buying incomes in the nation, which helps support our exceptional quality of life and modest tax rates.
