Jobs in Troy, New York, United States

Troy is a city located in Rensselaer County, in the US State of New York. Troy has a population of a little over 50,000 inhabitants and it serves as the county seat.

The city lies on the eastern banks of the Hudson River, close to the cities of Albany and Schenectady with whom the city enjoys close links.

Modern – Historical City

If you like Victorian architecture you will probably like Troy! Because the city boomed in the industrial revolution, the city was one of the wealthiest in all of America in the 19th century. The legacy of this is magnificent Victorian era architecture left all over the city.

The city boasts popular farmers and antiques markets, 11 well maintained parks and dozens of restaurants, bars and coffee houses, many centered on the frankly lovely Riverfront Park area.

There are a number of regular festivals including one of the largest Flag Day parades in the country and, my personal favorite, the Troy Pig Out, an annual BBQ festival and competition.

Key Facts:

  • Median Age: 30.6
  • Median Household Income: $38,954
  • Median Property Value: $143.800
  • Cost of Living: 16% lower than state average, 1% higher than national average
  • Unemployment Rate: 6.1%

Education & Health

The city is home to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, the oldest private engineering and technical college in the US. The College boasts an enrollment of around 7,500. Along with a pair of other colleges (including the 10,000 student Hudson Valley Community College) and the city education board itself, the Educational sector is a big employer here, providing around 12% of all jobs.

The presence of the polytechnic has also boosted local small-scale high tech companies – particularly video game developers of who there are several. This has helped add manufacturing (6% of jobs) and professional & Tech Services (5.5%) to the list of well performing and growing jobs markets.

The city is the terminus of the New York Barge Canal (which handles over 40,000 tons of cargo a year) and Troy is the regional distribution hub. This had led to a strong market in Transport and Warehousing jobs, which account for 6% of the local jobs market.

By far the largest job market is Health services, at 16%, this job market being propelled by two large-scale hospital/medical facilities in town as well as a number of medical non-profits.
