We lived there 30 years ago and loved it. Wish we'd never left. Dh worked for GE. Has any new high tech industry moved into the Roanoke area?

If not, then what are the top 3 businesses offering employment?

There are still plenty of job posting for GE Energy in Salem -- see Job Search | one search. all jobs. Indeed.com, 'GE' in 'Roanoke, VA'.

I moved to Roanoke 2+years ago, retired, so I'm no expert on the job market. But, here is a Roanoke Times article profiling some high-tech firms -- Progression despite the recession - Roanoke.com

ITT seems to be doing OK with their night vision products and Luna Innovations is into high-tech applications.

Here's a web page with top employers for Roanoke County - Roanoke County Economic Development - Top 25 Employers in Roanoke County

and Roanoke City - Major Employers (http://www.roanokeva.gov/WebMgmt/ywbase61b.nsf/CurrentBaseLink/N25zdj3f289lbasen - broken link)
