Prosper doing the work you love here in St. Joseph

There’s nothing like getting paid to do something you enjoy. Many of St. Joseph residents say they are doing just that. Why? Our community is big enough to have options across top industries, collaborative enough to support a growing network of entrepreneurs, and small enough to hold onto a family-friendly lifestyle.

We’ve got a strong local and regional infrastructure to support great quality jobs in a wide range of employment areas. We are also positioned perfectly to actively collaborate with Midwestern, national, and global industry giants. In fact, St. Joseph is a nationally recognized leader in animal health and life sciences, and a pivotal component of the KC Animal Health Corridor—where nearly one-third of the $19 billion global animal health industry is located.

You’ll find career opportunities from many national corporations with a major presence here, plus careers in health care, education, and business. If you’re a self-starter, get connected with Northwest Missouri State University’s Small Business and Technology Development Center and the Center for Entrepreneurship at Missouri Western’s Craig School of Business.
