Utah Jobs: Overview
The name Utah comes from the Native American Ute tribe who originally inhabited the area. It means "people of the mountains." The mountains around the state's capital, Salt Lake City, are something to behold: They get an average of 500 inches of snow each year. And it's the best kind of snow because its unusual dryness creates the powder skiers love. But Utah's mountains are only one of the reasons it's such a picturesque state. The Rainbow Bridge in Lake Powell is one of the world's largest natural bridges formed from rock. A patch of over 40,000 aspen trees in Fishlake National Forest shares a single root system that has been alive for thousands of years. Being a park ranger may be one of the busiest Utah jobs—Southeast Utah national parks see about 2 million visitors annually.
If you'd prefer to visit Utah's parks rather than work in them, you can search for jobs throughout the state—or create your own: Utah was ranked the best state for entrepreneurs by Forbes, and Salt Lake City was ranked one of the best places to start a business by Inc. You can find the beauty of Utah, and a great Utah job, in the state's largest cities of Salt Lake City, West Valley City, and Provo.
