It’s basically impossible to wrap our heads around how many jobs are out there, even right here in the Boise area. I had a recent conversation at the barber I go to in Kuna, Pete’s Legend Barber, and the owner of the shop, Miguel, told me...

“My favorite part about this job is getting to speak with so many different people every day. Pretty much everyone that sits in this chair and comes in here for a haircut does something completely different for work, and it really opens your eyes to all the jobs that are out there that keep our economy strong, and not enough people are appreciated for what they do.”

Well, ain’t that the freakin' truth!?

For Miguel, I didn’t see “Barber” on any of the lists I’ve researched, so it must be a rare job to have.

But he’s exactly right — we need A LOT of jobs to keep things running smoothly, and I wanted to highlight the most common jobs in the Boise area. There’s a recent article from Stacker that shares the most common jobs in Boise. They say...

“Stacker compiled a list of the most common jobs in Boise City using data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Jobs are ranked by total employment as of May 2020.
