Richmond City Overview

Richmond, Virginia's capital city, has a population of 200,600 people and is known for its rich history and diverse community. Many universities are located here, including Virginia Commonwealth University and the University of Richmond. Because of these two top universities, as well as Richmond's status as the state capital, it is an ideal location for restaurants, bars, and shopping for both locals and tourists.

With the current unemployment rate of 4.2%, there should be a large pool of qualified candidates to choose from. In addition, because of its proximity to the suburbs and multiple universities, many people commute to Richmond for work every day. This should provide you with a large pool of employees from which to choose.

Richmond Businesses

While these industries tend to hire salaried employees, the town's two main universities make it an excellent location for shopping and dining. As a result, their service industry is expanding and becoming a more important part of the economy. Finding great hires should be easy whether you work for a large corporation or a small business.
