Health Care

There will always be a need for health care workers, including nurses, doctors, therapists of all types, plus all of the additional jobs in administration, medical billing and coding, food service, maintenance, technology, janitorial, and many more that come with running hospitals, doctor’s offices, clinics, and medical administrative offices.

Real Estate

Knoxville real estate is also a fast-growing industry. Just as there will always be a need for health care and health care workers, so there will also always be a need for buying and selling homes, building homes, and buying and selling land.

With Clayton Homes, whose speciality is building manufactured homes, as one of the top employers in Knoxville, it is clear that real estate is not just a large industry in Knoxville, but one of the top industries.

Lowe’s and Home Depot also have headquarters in Knoxville, so the peripheral areas of real estate, such as adding finishing touches to a home in order to sell or after buying will contribute to this industry as well.

Banking and Finance

Finally, if you are looking to relocate for a career in banking or finance, Knoxville may be your ideal city.

With so many career options in this industry from tellers to financial planners to loan officers, this is a field where any specialty can find a niche. And just as with health care and real estate, there are some large companies that employ many people headquartered in Knoxville. First Horizon Bank and Home Federal Bank of Tennessee, to name just two, are headquartered in Knoxville.

Plus all of the previously mentioned industries (and basically every other industry) would require an accountant and possibly other specialized financial professionals. If you are looking for a career in banking or finance, Knoxville has many options for you.

With the amount of companies making their headquarters in Knoxville, it is obvious that there are many big industries there, including health care, real estate, and banking/finance.

With so many options for employers and jobs, Knoxville may be the perfect place to call home, especially if you are looking to start or advance your career in one of these fields.
