An Abundance of Ready-to-Work Talent
Eastern Idaho is known as “Millennial City USA”, home to one of the country’s largest groups of young talent. Over 81 percent of the City of Rexburg residents are under 30 with a 22.3 median age – 15 years younger than the national average. That means that businesses and potential new industries looking to tap into a large pool of ready-to-work talent to fill jobs will find Eastern Idaho one of the best places in the nation to find employees.
Education & Talent
The Eastern Idaho Innovation Corridor is a prime location for science, technology, research and advanced energy industries with each requiring a large base of educat- ed, trained young talent to fill positions. University of Idaho, Brigham Young University-Idaho, Idaho State University, and College of Eastern Idaho register over 30,000 students register every semester with thousands fluent in a second language representing 40 dialects. The region serves as a breeding ground for companies seeking educated workers.
Major employers like Idaho National Laboratory (INL), Melaleuca, Simplot, AB InBev, Premier Technology, and Monsanto look no further than their own backyard to fill open jobs.
