It's a metro area of ~3M people, it has all the usual stuff of any large metro area. It's also the only major city for 500 miles in any direction, i.e., it's a regional center for many things like banking, IT, medical, pro sports, education, warehousing, airlines, etc.

I'd say government, technology, and oil & gas are pretty significant out here.

That's my wife's field and while all she has done is look at the job boards she has said there are a LOT more options there than where we are now, so it's not too bad I suppose. Of course, if you are talking print news that's a rough gig no matter where you are.
