West Virginia is an interesting state for many reasons, including the fact that the United States Census Bureau considers it to be part of the Southern United States, but the Bureau of Labor Statistics considers it to be part of the Mid-Atlantic. However you look at it, or whatever part of the nation claims it, West Virginia is a historically significant state, being the only state to separate from a Confederate state during the Civil War, and is a great place to live and work.
West Virginia is heaven for outdoor lovers and adventurers. It is covered in rolling hills and mountains. It has many caves for its citizens and visitors to explore. Activites you can do in the state include whitewater rafting, hiking, mountain biking, skiing and rock climbing. Looking to get away from it all? Come visit West Virginia!
Economically, West Virginia is a fast-growing state. A 2014 report from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis determined that the state's economy was growing twice as fast as the next fastest growing state East of the Mississippi River. Tourism and natural resources such as coal are driving much of the state's growth.
If you're looking for a career in a state that provides incredible opportunity for outdoor activity, West Virginia is a great place to be. And a great choice for that career is the electrical field. It all starts by beginning a West Virginia electrican apprenticeship.
