Cincinnati Jobs: Overview
If you founded a city across the mouth of the Licking River, would you name it Losantiville? The founders of what is now Cincinnati thought it was a clever contraction for the river-like location. Luckily, city officials in 1790 officially changed the city's name to Cincinnati after Roman soldier and hero Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus. That fact may not lure you into looking for Cincinnati jobs, but maybe the city's much-lower-than-average cost of living will. It's an affordable city, with low health care costs and even lower housing costs, compared to the rest of the county. In addition, there are several Fortune 500 companies that provide jobs in Cincinnati, including Kroger, Procter & Gamble, Macy's, Fifth Third Bancorp, and Cintas.
Things to know about Cincinnati before you move here include the history of Play-Doh—it was created by Cincinnati company Kutol. There's also Skyline chili, a franchise started in Cincy that has convinced some people that chili belongs on top of spaghetti and hot dogs. And while we're talking food, don't forget Pringles potato chips. Since Cincinnatian Frederic Baur invented Pringles, it makes sense that he's buried there. In a Pringles can. If that makes you want to relocate to search for Cincinnati jobs, you can also take a look at suburbs Fairfield, Hamilton, and Middletown.
