Jobs in Wake Forest, North Carolina, United States

The town of Wake Forest came into existence in 1832, when the North Carolina Baptist Convention decided to set up an educational facility and bought over 600 acres of land from Dr. Calvin Jones’s private plantation. The institute was established in 1834 and over 70 students were enrolled within the first year.

The members of the institute longed for a railroad system for convenient commutes, hence the relocation of the Forestville railroad depot to the Wake Forest community opened new commercial establishments. Many residential and commercial plots began to take shape and the town of Wake Forest was integrated on March 26th, 1880.

Cotton mills was a primary occupation for the residents of Wake Forest and it wasn’t until the mid-1950s that the town decided to explore other economic venues. Since the 1990s, there has been a population explosion and a surge of industrial growth within the town. Today, new residents make their way into Wake Forest looking for job opportunities to further their career prospects.
