Buffalo Jobs: Overview

Most people will think of tangy sauce slathered over chicken wings when they envision Buffalo, but the second-largest city in the state of New York has lots more going for it. Some quick, fun facts: It has the first and oldest coordinated urban parks system in the country; the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library features a Rare Book Room with the original manuscript for Mark Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn; and the area boasts no less than five Frank Lloyd Wright buildings, including the phenomenal Martin House (a designated National Historic Landmark).

Buffalo jobs were originally supported by shipments arriving down the Erie Canal, and have now branched out into various sectors, including logistics, banking, healthcare, and tourism. Viticulture is becoming popular too, and Buffalo’s cost of living is 20.5% lower than the U.S. average. Winters may be harsh and snowy, but spring, summer, and early fall climates are usually very accommodating—and you’re just 20 miles away from the magnificent Niagara Falls. Also, consider looking around Rochester, Albany, and New York City for additional job opportunities.

Popular Jobs in Buffalo

As the gateway to Niagara Falls and a hydroelectric-power pioneer, Buffalo saw a rise in industry and development early on. But where is the economy shining most brightly today? With a multitude of hospitals, research centers, and universities firmly dotting the region, both health services and the education field have many opportunities for job seekers. And tons of compelling research emanates from the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus (BNMC), with a particular focus on the human genome, bioinformatics, and cancer treatment.

But the area is also known as a financial center, with a strong concentration of bankers (notably within the headquarters of M&T Bank) and business operations (from GEICO and the New Era Cap Company to the General Mills cereal plant—the oldest of its kind in the nation).
