Columbus Jobs: Overview
Columbus is the six-degrees-of-separation state. Or, make that 600 miles. Nearly half the residents of the U.S. live within a 600-mile radius of Columbus. A little closer to home, some famous "Columbusites" include Food Network star Guy Fieri, Olympic gymnast Simone Biles, golfer Jack Nicklaus, and authors R.L. Stine and James Thurber. But the personality with one of the best Columbus jobs has to be Brutus, the mascot of The Ohio State Buckeyes. And, yes, the university is the only one in the U.S. that has the word "The" in its official name. It also has the only football team that plays in a shoe—a horseshoe-shaped stadium, that is.
Columbus is an affordable place to live, with a lower-than-average cost of living. You can find Columbus jobs in unique neighborhoods like German Village, which has brick roads and charming, restored houses from the mid-1800s. You can also check out Short North, an arts district with galleries and boutiques, and Easton, an entertainment and retail mecca with more than 300 shops and restaurants. Just outside of Columbus, you can find jobs in popular suburbs that include Dublin, Grove City, and Westerville.
Popular Jobs in Columbus
Columbus is a city on the move. An average of 60 people were born or moved into Columbus each day in the last decade—that's more than 230,000 new residents. The city has also created several programs to help people move around in Columbus, including a variety of ways to use the city bus service. That's part of the reason transportation jobs are popular in Columbus.
The newer neighborhoods of Polaris and Easton have given rise to many large business and office parks filled with business operations jobs. It follows that all those offices contain people who need to eat lunch. Because Columbus is a good representation of the U.S., it has been a test market for restaurants, especially fast food, for years. With thousands of fast food and sit-down restaurants, Columbus has many opportunities for food service jobs.
