Jobs in Dothan, Alabama, United States

Dothan is a city located in the US state of Alabama. It lies in the very south-eastern corner of the state, just 20 miles west of Georgia and 16 miles north of the Florida state lines respectively.

The city boasts a population of around 65,000 and is considered a major transportation and commercial hub for the section of the state it occupies, along with southwest Georgia and northern Florida.

The city is nicknamed the Peanut Capital of the World, with around a quarter of the US peanut crop grown and processed here.

What’s Life like in Dothan?

The peanut crop saved the city from economic ruin in the early 19th century when a boll weevil infestation devastated all other cash crops in the area. The celebrate this, and the ongoing importance of the peanut to this area, the city celebrates with a two week long International Peanut Festival every fall. The city also hosts two professional barbeque competitions every year as well a three-day music festival every April.

The city is home to a number of museums and art galleries and a small but vibrant performing arts scene operating out of a pair of well-maintained community theatre spaces. There are botanical gardens and golf courses located in the city, as well as numerous municipal parks.

Dothan is a remarkably safe city to live in, with FBI statistics revealing a well below national average rate for violent crime. In 2016, for example, there was only one homicide for the entire year.

Around 50% of the Dothan jobs market is in “white collar” employment, reflecting the city’s status as a regional transportation and commerce hub. Office and Administrative support occupations, plus Sales and related occupations account for the largest job groups in the city, providing around 17,000 jobs here.
