Nevada is an exciting state in which to live and work, but it offers more than its world-famous casinos and headliner shows. The state’s economy is made up not just of tourism, but of lesser-known sectors such as energy, aerospace/defense, manufacturing, health care and tech. Nevada’s rail hubs and trucking regulations have attracted many transportation companies. The state is home to many air force bases and the defense contractors that work with them, and the state’s climate and natural resources have attracted companies that develop renewable energy resources such as solar and wind power. Information security analysts will find many potential employers in the state.
