These Cities and Industries CYBER


Omaha, Neb. A real-time analysis by the Computing Technology Industry Association breaks down avail- able cybersecurity jobs by metro area. Omaha — home to Off utt AFB, U.S. Strategic Command, and industry employers — could become the cyber-defense career destination that veers outside the D.C. beltway. Omaha’s demand for cyber personnel rates very high, while its supply is consid- ered very low. Metro Washington, D.C., still dominates job openings, with 44,592 to Omaha’s 1,551.


ENERGY Minneapolis A new training program has opened the door a little wider for offi cers to transition to the fastest-growing economy of any large metro in the Upper Midwest. Xcel Energy, with headquarters in Minneapolis, announced last year 15 percent of all new hires were veterans. Transitioning offi cers of- ten join the company’s Minnesota nuclear power plants via a train- ing pipeline. A growing focus on renewables, such as construction of several wind energy farms in the region, adds to the company’s appeal among recent veterans, says Lacey Golonka, consultant on veterans and diversity at Xcel and a sergeant fi rst class in the Army National Guard.


FINANCE AND TECH Charlotte, N.C. Charlotte is one of the biggest banking centers in the U.S. — behind only New York and San Francisco, according to The Charlotte Observer’s annual anal- ysis. The city is home to the TIAA offi ces, where Locklear landed after the Air Force. Bank of Amer- ica’s headquarters are there, too. Meanwhile, Charlotte is gaining ground as a technology hub, with the fastest tech job growth from 2014 to 2016, according to Forbes.
