Come work for the world’s most student-centric university at one of nine regional hubs. Here are three of them.
Salt Lake City has inspired many nicknames, including “Crossroads of the West” and “Utah’s Urban Gateway.” Forbes calls it “a mecca for IT professionals” because numerous tech companies have put down roots here. It’s easy to see why they would. Set at the foot of spectacular mountains, this modern metropolis features breathtaking natural landscapes and a newly remodeled international airport. Locals pay low taxes and get around easily thanks to a street grid system based on a standard compass grid plan. SLC is also home to must-see murals and street art, world-class skiing, and dining options from every corner of the globe.
Austin is a premier business and leisure destination with a culture all its own. The city is home to many musicians, live music venues for every taste, and South by Southwest, a 10-day festival celebrating film, music, and digital media, with thousands of performers playing on 100 stages around downtown every spring. Eclectic restaurants and great vintage shopping also top the list of activities visitors love and locals can’t get enough of. Forbes ranked Austin #8 on its list of “Best Places for Business and Careers 2019.”
In this city known for iconic landscapes, it’s no wonder that the options for outdoor activities abound. Explore the magnificent natural scenery on one of countless drives or hikes. See a saguaro cactus up close at the Desert Botanical Garden. Take flight in a hot air balloon. Wind down a day of lively exploring by tucking into a plate of tacos. They’re a mainstay here, and you’re never more than a stone’s throw away from some of the best Phoenix has to offer. The city is also home to luxurious spas, championship golf courses, and countless other ways to recharge your batteries after a hard week’s work.
