Two national business magazines say Arizona will be the best state in the country for new jobs next year.
Forbes magazine projects Arizona’s job growth will continue to be on top for the next three years.
Gainsight, a tech company based in Silicon Valley, is now operating in downtown Phoenix, bringing dozens of new jobs with it.
“We’re still a young company; we’re still going to grow and our hope is to grow with Phoenix. What can easily be a couple dozen jobs today can easily by 50 to 100 jobs the following year,” Gainsight Vice President Anthony Kennada said.
Kennada said companies like his are coming to the Valley and chasing Arizona’s talent pool.
“There’s so much momentum happening here in Phoenix. We’re seeing this talent, creativity and entrepreneurship here that’s really exciting,” Kennada said.
The Greater Phoenix Economic Council said technology is just one industry that is growing in Arizona.
“The three industries that are well outpacing the national average are healthcare, financial services and software,” GPEC CEO Chris Camacho said.
Business forecast site Kiplinger expects nearly 100,000 new jobs in Arizona next year with the healthcare and insurance industries leading the way.
