Hello all,

Can anyone share information on employment opportunities and growth in the Idaho Falls area? (Or possibly direct me to a feed that has addressed this recently)
In particular for someone with a strong maintenance background and property management as well as medical administration and/or organizational management with a focus of Human Resources.

From what I have found, the public middle/high schools seem to be reviewed positively but I welcome any information or advice on that topic as well.

Thank you!

I doubt it will take you long to find work, Eric, given those credentials. I.F. is a major medical center for a huge surrounding area, and we have a lot of medical specialty practices here, along with several hospitals, lots of doc-in-the-boxes, etc.

Housing is booming as well.

In general, the schools in both districts here are performing at higher levels than many other areas in Idaho. Dist. 93, which serves the county outside the I.F. city limits, is having growth problems, as it faces a big wave of elementary kids who will enter Jr. High and High School soon, but a 3rd high school is now under construction.

Idaho Falls schools haven't grown as fast, but the preliminary talk is just beginning for a 3rd high school in Dist. 91.

There is also an upcoming county wide school bond that, if approved, would change our present 2-year technical school into a Junior College. At present, the Eastern Idaho Technical College, which has existed for 30 years, isn't scholastically accredited in the same way all the other colleges in the state are, and the bond is asked to facilitate the change of mission and the additional construction of more new classrooms.

Idaho Falls is the only city of its size in the state that lacks a Jr. College or higher, but some of the other colleges have branches here at a facility called University Place.

So, all in all, our education here is pretty good and may get better for high school graduates. EITC was created to supply the INL, the largest test lab in the nation, workers who were trained in the most needed tech jobs at the site.
