Colorado was ranked the 8th-best state for jobs for 2024. Looking at the data, Colorado grew to the 7th-best job market in the nation and the 15th-best economic environment.

If you are searching for a new job, you have most likely noticed that the majority of jobs require a bachelor's degree. That is changing for many roles for the majority of companies across the state.

Nearly half of companies in Colorado will eliminate bachelor's degree requirements for various positions.
