Idaho

Welcome to Idaho! The lifestyle you’ve dreamed about is here—with job opportunities in beautiful and diverse settings which offer a bountiful playground for every season. Idaho has room for you—less than half the state’s vast land is privately owned, and is home to the largest wilderness area in the 48 contiguous states; 2.3 million acres of pristine wilderness. Make your career in a land traversed by Sacajawea and Lewis and Clark, the Oregon Trail and the Northern Rockies! Idaho cities and towns offer a genuine sense of community and western tradition. Become part of Idaho’s rich northwest heritage!
