Working in Montgomery

Montgomery has a diverse labor force. We are the state capital; the home to the Intellectual and Leadership Center of the U.S. Air Force (Maxwell Air Force Base); and Information Technology Leader for the Department of Defense (Maxwell Gunter Annex). We have a thriving automotive manufacturing market with the only American Hyundai Motors plant; a vibrant $1.3 million-per-day tourism market; a diverse retail market; and seven universities. The cutting-edge medical community workforce is expanding. And as a growing cyber center, civilian technology jobs are projected (average salary of more than $68,000) to increase 37 percent 2010 to 2020.
