Jobs in Augusta, Maine, United States

Augusta is the picturesque capital of the state of Maine. A population of just 19,136 makes it the third smallest state capital in the United States. Despite this it is a vibrant place to live and work with no end of skilled opportunities. As well as being a hub for logistics and distribution firms many of Augusta’s resident’s find employment in the private sector. The city is also the home of the University of Maine.

Augusta is located on the Kennebec River. Settled in the 17th century Augusta grew up around the fur trading industry. After being recognised as a city in 1849 Augusta was then made the state capital of Maine. This sparked an influx of industry into the area, which subsequently saw Augusta becoming increasingly metropolitanised.

Initially a mill town, thanks to excellent soil suited to agriculture and waterpower from a host of local streams and the recently dammed Kennebec River Augusta began to flourish. The arrival of the Kennebec & Portland Railroad in 1851 provided an additional boost. Soon as well as a productive mill town Augusta was also emerging as a publishing and shipping centre.

A City Of Opportunity

Many of the region’s private sector companies have their bases in Augusta. One such company to the Central Maine Power Company, which is an electric utility serving over 560,000 customers throughout the state. Another major employer is SCI Systems, which produces computer peripheral equipment.

Recently a number of high tech jobs have been created in Augusta as companies have moved to the area. Microdyne, a technology services company is one such example. They have centred their technical support and helpdesk in Augusta creating a number of employment opportunities. As Augusta, like the rest of Maine, has fibre optic cable in the majority of its phone lines. This allows greater carrying capacity and is attractive to firms that demand easy linkage with other offices.

The central location of Augusta has helped to make it a major regional distribution centre. This means that there is significant warehousing and distribution activity in Augusta. Away from this industry education (in particular the University of Maine), tourism and retail are also major contributors to Augusta’s economy.

A Small But Vibrant City

The state Capitol Buildings and Maine State Museum are both popular tourist attractions providing hours of interest. There are also many buildings of architectural interest to enjoy such as the Old Post Office. For people who enjoy spending time in the great outdoors Viles Arboretum and Capitol Park both have many beautiful walks to enjoy in stunning surroundings.

As it is also a university town Augusta has many vibrant nightspots and a large selection of restaurants catering to all taste. Amongst the most popular are the Red Barn and Downtown Diner.

Despite it’s small size Augusta is a vibrant city full of employment opportunities in sectors from technology to education and tourism. The cost of living in Augusta is also slightly lower than the United States average. This only adds to the appeal of this charming city.
