The Monroe economy is filled with opportunity for new business and professional growth.
In 2013, Forbes named Louisiana “America’s New Frontier for Business Opportunity” — one of the most attractive places in the nation for companies to do business across a number of industries.
Home to a strong manufacturing industry and a skilled, highly trained workforce, Monroe and West Monroe offer many career opportunities for residents of Northeast Louisiana. Filled with thriving companies that range from multi-state distribution centers to food processing centers, and CenturyLink, a Fortune 500 company with headquarters in the area, the Monroe economy is alive and well. The Northeast Region’s trademark sense of community extends to the workplace as well, with opportunities available for professional enrichment and social networking across a variety of industries.
