Work in Nashville
The Nashville area's economy is among the most diverse of that in any U.S. region. As a result, Nashville continues to attract the highest-quality workers in all business sectors. Nashville supports many innovative and aggressive local programs to recruit workers to the region.
WorkIT Nashville is a multi-faceted campaign launched in February 2013 to recruit technology workers to the Nashville region. The website includes more than 800 jobs in the Nashville region from more than 100 companies.
In an October 2010 poll conducted by Harris Interactive, Nashville ranked as the nation's seventh most popular city. The poll asked people where they would want to live if they could live anywhere in the nation (other than their current home).
Of course, many of Nashville's most valuable workers come from the area's own vast educational system, with its 18 accredited four-year and postgraduate institutions. In the Nashville MSA, 44.9 percent of adults at least 25 years old have one or more years of college education, and more than 45,000 people have graduate or professional degrees.

Nashville ranked No. 6 out of 77 cities across the country for hiring financial professionals, according to a study by Accounting Principals, a Jacksonville, Fla.-based accounting and finance staffing firm. The study drew its conclusions from the volume of job openings it found in cities across the country. The strongest cities have financial professionals often entertaining multiple offers, according to Accounting Principals, something not many sectors of the economy have been able to boast.
