North Dakota Ranks First in STEM Job Growth

Posted: Updated:

North Dakota is known for our agriculture, farming and oil production. But there is something else North Dakotans can be proud of.

With the booming job growth in North Dakota, it's no surprise that North Dakota was ranked first in the nation for STEM growth. This includes science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

But here's the cool part, this is the second year in a row that North Dakota has been recognized.

"To do it once is one thing, but to have it for two years in a row with all of the competitions that there is out there in the United States that's key," says John MacMartin, Chamber of Commerce.

In addition to the STEM job growth, the state also took first in legal environment and second in college affordability.
