Let’s get started

Talent: our top natural resource

New Jersey is a hotspot for top talent. Nearly 39% of New Jersey residents hold a bachelor degree or higher — that’s why we’re named the smartest state in America. We have the joint highest concentration of engineers and scientists in the U.S. With the next generations emerging from our nationally ranked colleges and universities, New Jersey offers a world-class workforce for today and tomorrow.


Set on the East Coast of the U.S., New Jersey pulses with energy, intelligence and possibility. It’s the beating heart of the Boston-Washington DC corridor, with access to 56.5m residents and $3.75 trillion in GDP. A powerful tech hub, Newark is 20 minutes away from New York City and under 3 hours to Washington DC. Regional airports offer daily flights to over 600 nonstop destinations worldwide.
