Mining, or mineral extraction, is by far the largest industry in Wyoming. Coal, natural gas, crude oil, coalbed methane, uranium, and trona are the major commodities found in the state. In fact, Wyoming is one of the top coal-producing states in the country. The Equality State is also a major producer of crude oil, plastics, paints, and synthetic rubber.
If you have experience in any of these industries, you are likely to find employment in the state.
Here is another interesting fact you should keep in mind if you are without a four-year degree. Wyoming has the country’s largest share of good jobs—that is, jobs that pay $35,000 or more—for people without an undergraduate degree.
