Jobs in Bellingham Washington

By
Real Estate Sales Representative with Windermere Real Estate / Whatcom Inc.

I am often asked about Bellingham’s job market. The most common two questions are “Are there any jobs in Bellingham?” and “Where do people work in Bellingham?” . The answer to these two questions are yes and there are jobs available in many different sectors in Bellingham.

Click here for a list of the current top employers in Bellingham. I have also provided a list of links below to places where current, available jobs are posted for Bellingham and the surrounding vicinity.

Worksource is a popular place for businesses to post available jobs. Worksource is a joint venture of organizations that provide resources for both employers and perspective employees. Along with job postings for all of Whatcom County, in a variety of professions, the Worksource website also provides an array of tools to help job-seekers find and get the job that they are looking for. BP, Western Washington University, and Peacehealth (St. Joseph Hospital) are just a few of the employers who post job openings on this site.

Craigslist is another popular source for finding jobs in Bellingham. Many local employers are using Craigslist to post both full time and piece work jobs. Craigslist does a great job of categorizing their job postings, however, you will need to scroll down the page a bit to find older postings. Sometimes there are still open postings that have been pushed down the page because they are a few days old.

Another place to search for jobs is on the local paper’s website. The Bellingham Herald’s job classifieds is powered by Career Builder and allows you to search for new job postings by keywords. I have not found this to be the best place to find local employment opportunities, but it is another place to expand your search.

If all else fails, another great way to find the job you are looking for is to simply ask around. If you are interested in a particular line of work, let people know. The beauty of a small town lies in the connections you find. If you are a go-getter with a positive attitude and a drive for success, someone may be willing to create a position just for you.

There are jobs available in Bellingham and in Whatcom County, you just have to know where to look, and sometimes you need to do a little digging, but I guarantee that there are some awesome opportunities just waiting for people like yourself. We need more workers! If you are looking for a new place to hang your hat from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm, and if you are looking to relocate, browse these links – your dream career may be in Bellingham Washington!

Ryan,

That top list is interesting. When I was young, GP was the top employer. They phased out over the years. I would not have expected the casino to be so high. The public list is pretty much as I would have expected.

Thanks for the comment Steve. The Silver Reef Casino and Hotel is a pretty big employer in Whatcom County.

Ryan,

You are obviously correct on the casino. Knowing that it does not surprise me but I would not have guessed. About seven of the other employers on that list I probably could have guessed, but not that one.

@Steve ~ It is funny how we can sometimes forget about major employers. Sometimes you don't even think of the businesses being that big.

Our area is doing well, however, I often here "Bellingham" in those best of lists that circulate.  In fact, Bellingham could be the second best place in the state of Washington to live and work!  [grins]

Maybe we should just agree that the Tri Cities and Bellingham are tied for 1st place in Washington State.
