Grand Junction Job Opportunities

Traditionally, Grand Junction, CO jobs were in farming, fruit growing, and cattle raising. Fruit orchards continue to be a staple of the economy, growing a variety of produce that includes pears, apricots, cherries, and wine grapes. Since the town has become a stop for outdoor enthusiasts, retail stores have flourished.

The oil industry was quite prosperous in the 70s and 80s, but it was abandoned when it became too costly to drill and oil prices plummeted. With today's oil prices soaring and mining technology increasing, this may soon change, and lucrative energy jobs in Grand Junction, CO may return.

Jobs in Grand Junction seem to be turning around as the unemployment rate continues to decrease. It has a broad-based economy with many jobs in education, retail, and healthcare. The move away from the energy industry as being the town's major source of revenue will place Grand Junction in a much more stable position in the future.
