Job hunting can be a challenge in the best of times, and it’s even more complicated during COVID-19 when many companies have had to close their doors or lay off folks in response to the pandemic. Nonetheless, companies are still hiring in every state, particularly institutions that are big enough to weather the trials and tribulations of a changing economy.

GOBankingRates gathered the top companies hiring in each state by referencing the 2020 Fortune 500 rankings to find the largest company by revenue headquartered in each state. Then, GOBankingRates pulled the open roles within each headquarters.

For states where no top Fortune 500 companies are headquartered, GOBankingRates used data from Zippia to find major employers. Take a look at the top companies hiring across the U.S.

    Methodology: GOBankingRates first referenced the 2020 Fortune 500 rankings to find the largest company by revenue headquartered in each state. Then, GOBankingRates visited each company’s careers portal to find the number of active open roles within the headquarters state. For states where no top Fortune 500 companies are headquartered and advertising at least 10 open roles, Zippia’s data on the top companies by employee count headquartered in each state was used to find major employers. For the top company hiring now in each state, GOBankingRates provided the (1) name of the company, (2) Fortune 500, (2) total annual revenue, (3) total number of employees and (4) headquarters location from Fortune and Zippia’s data, as well as (5) the total number of current open roles within the HQ state and (6) three examples of available job titles from company websites. All information was collected on and up to date as of Jan. 15, 2021.
