Learn A Few of the Fantastic Things About Living and Working In NH

Living and Working In NH

Income, Opportunity, and Fun Make Living and Working In NH Look Fantastic

Quality of life is an important factor in any job search, especially if that job requires you to relocate. City life provides ample job opportunities, but the cost of living if often high and access to outdoor recreation can be limited. Working in NH gives people a rare opportunity to have a great job and be near outdoor fun, cultural events and nightlife all within close proximity.

NH's Outdoors Lifestyle

Whether you like to golf, ski, boat or lay on the beach, New Hampshire has it all. The Lakes Region, centrally located in New Hampshire, is a short ride for most residents to get away from it all on the weekends. After boating, swimming or fishing for the day, the small towns that dot the lake shores offer many delicious restaurants where you can grab a bite and a drink.

The mountains of New Hampshire are also a great place to get outdoors, unwind and have fun. The White Mountains region provides year-round fun, including hiking, skiing, snowmobiling, and quiet rental retreats. Towns like North Conway feature plenty of fun, from mini golf to outlet shopping. At the southeastern tip of the state is the state's small coastline, featuring both sandy and rocky beaches. Being in a small state means that after swimming, surfing or playing in the sand, you can buy lobsters caught that day and cook them at home for dinner. 

The Cultural Hub of NH

Manchester, the state's largest city, has a number of cultural attractions, including the Currier Art Museum, which offers visitors access to a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home right in the city limits. The Southern New Hampshire University Arena has national touring acts, from the Boston Pops to Janet Jackson, and the city boasts two minor league teams: the Manchester Monarchs hockey team and the New Hampshire Fishercats baseball team. Outside of Manchester, the Flying Monkey Movie House & Performance Center in Plymouth and the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion at Meadowbrook feature national acts performing a wide range of music from rock to country, to classic favorites, and the Prescott Park Arts Festival features Broadway musicals, music, and fun family films under the stars, overlooking Portsmouth Harbor.

When you work in NH, it's not hard to enjoy what the state has to offer. Being a small state (it’s only 50 miles across at its widest point!) means the mountains, the beach or the city are never far away.

Quality Of Life Metrics

Don't just take our word for it. There have been many studies that have shown New Hampshire is one of the most livable states, one of the safest states, and one of the best states to raise children. As we've mentioned, ease of travel is another aspect of what makes working in NH so great. There's not a lot of sitting in traffic for hours to get to work, especially in smaller towns like Milford, where Hitchiner Manufacturing is located. If you want to get it away from it all, however, you can easily hop on a plane from the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport which is connected to many major airline hubs.

Job Opportunities in NH

There are many people who believe promising job opportunities only exist in major cities, but low unemployment and a thriving economy mean working in NH can be a satisfying and lucrative option for those seeking work. Total employment is on the rise and jobs in professional, scientific and technical services are growing especially fast.

Job seekers have another advantage opting to work in NH. With 26 colleges within the state, including two research facilities, there are plenty of opportunities for people to work while seeking a higher degree. Professional certificates and other advanced learning programs offer professional development that can help advance your career. 

This mix of high quality of life, low unemployment, and a booming economy mean that NH has lots of potential for people looking to develop their career. In fact, US News and World Report put NH as number 1 when it comes to opportunity.
