Colorado Biz Magazine reports:

Everybody — back to work!

According to the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, businesses added 3,700 nonfarm payroll jobs from December 2014 to January 2015, for a total of 2,496,500 jobs. That number is higher than the peak 2,362,700 jobs in May 2008. Full recovery, the report indicated, occurred in March 2013 when Colorado’s nonfarm payroll jobs reached 2,363,500. More good news from the state: Colorado’s unemployment rate decreased from 5.8 percent in January 2014 to 4.2 percent a year later. By Nora Caley

Greetings GIS Colorado community:

I have just written an essay accompanied by 3 videos about the “Top Five Skills You Need for a Successful Career in GIS”, here:


Most “top 5” lists are a bit subjective, mine included, but I structured it that way on purpose to invite some discussion about it.

Have a great day,
