You want a great job. Let us show you where to find it.
A great job—one that pays well, with room to grow, where you’re part of something bigger—seems impossible to find. Maybe you’re not looking in the right place. Learn about the jobs for the life you’ve always wanted here in Indiana.
Industries driving Indiana’s future
You like helping people. You’re interested in science, in biology, in tech. You want to make it possible for people to live healthier lives. The life science industry is where you’ll find the right job.
Indiana’s life sciences industry includes companies big and small in areas with a human health focus. There are pharmaceutical and drug makers and medical device and equipment manufacturers. Research, testing, and medical laboratories help accelerate discovery and health information technology improves the patients’ care.
The average wage in the life sciences industry—$108,800—is twice the average wage per person in the private sector.
You know that feeding people is a huge undertaking. You’re passionate about improving plant and animal health and the health of the environment. You’re interested in what's at work in our fields and farms and how to use science and technology.
Agbioscience is where food, agriculture, science, and technology converge—the kind of dynamic sector that thrives in Indiana. These kinds of companies need innovative people to help feed our communities and preserve the natural resources of the world. And while they need up-and-coming engineers and future farmers, they also need lawyers, administrators, and salespeople, too.
Advanced Manufacturing & Logistics
You love making things. Hands-on is how you learn best. You find satisfaction in putting together the schedule, how to get from here to there, the steps it will take to accomplish your goal.
Our manufacturing and logistics industry is Indiana’s superpower you’ve likely never even thought about. From making automobiles to chocolates and moving all of it across the world, these businesses make up about a third of Indiana’s economy. And the kinds of jobs they offer just might be the kind of job you want. High-tech, high-wage, hands-on, and opportunities for on-the-job training—with or without a college degree.
You see technology as a crucial part of the solutions to so many of today’s problems. Hardware, software, coding—if it comes naturally to you, you can find a place to use it to make the world a little better. You’re always looking for ways to make programs work better, safer, or more efficiently—even if that means creating your solution and start-up to launch it.
If you’re interested in translating your ease with digital technology into a job, you can find the kinds of internships—and even externships—that get you to where you want to be. Indiana’s tech sector is big and growing — with more than 9,000 tech companies across the state. And each one needs people who can talk fluently about technology to market, sell, and support the teams creating it—so don’t write it off if you’re not a developer yourself.
Talent & Workforce Development
You’re interested in working with a great team. You’ve got a particular set of skills and you’re looking to join the right team—but you’re not sure what that might be. Being a part of something that can make a difference sounds great.
When you want a job with great pay, great benefits, and room to grow—Indiana’s talent and workforce development professionals can show you where to find it. They connect you to the kinds of training, apprenticeships, networks, and mentoring opportunities that can get you where you want to go.
