Charlottesville and the surrounding Albemarle County is a thriving, economically vital region home to approximately 145,000 residents and diverse job-generating enterprises from large employers to start-up companies. We enjoy viable non-profit enterprises, commerce, suppliers, research businesses and agri-businesses. The University of Virginia and its graduate programs attract talented students with infectious energy and exciting ideas who are a tremendous resource for local business. UVA, along with Piedmont Virginia Community College and the Charlottesville/Albemarle Technical Education Center, also provides the area with above par secondary education opportunities. In fact, in Forbes’ 2017 Best Small Places for Business and Careers, Charlottesville made the top 20 out of 200 locations. Major employers in the area include the University of Virginia, State Farm and the U.S. Department of Defense. Charlottesville also has a thriving small business community that provides our town with its unique vibe. Be sure to check out our biggest job fairs next spring, such as the PVCC Annual Job Fair.
