Jobs in Yuma, Arizona, United States

Yuma is a beautiful city of Yuma County and is located in the South Western corner of Arizona. The city has borders with both California and the neighbouring country of Mexico. Yuma has a population of only around 100,000, but interestingly this figure almost doubles during winter. This is because the city is the favourite winter residence for almost 100,000 senior citizens by virtue of its pleasant, warm climate during that season.

Yuma gets its name from “Humo” – the Spanish word for smoke. The early Spanish explorers noticed clouds of smoke coming from the large fires that the natives created to cook their food and they decided to call these natives, the “Yumas”. The city gained attention during the California Gold Rush as an important transit point to California.

Several parks and recreational public works contribute to the aesthetic value of the city, besides providing residents and visitors a place where they can partake in recreational and cultural activities. There are numerous golf courses in Yuma, the most prominent of them being the Desert Hills Golf Course.

Yuma has an elaborate public bus transit system in place. The city boasts of an international airport, the Yuma International Airport. It handles both civilian and military flights and doubles up as a flight testing facility for commercial airliners.
