It seems like a near-impossible task to wrap our heads around how many jobs are really out there, even just right here in the Boise area. We recently had a conversation with the owner of Pete’s Legend Barber in Kuna, Miguel, and he shared his enthusiasm for Boise's diverse employment landscape:

"The best part of my gig? Conversations with people from all walks of life. Each person in my chair has a unique profession, and it's eye-opening to witness the variety of careers out there that completely fuels our economy. Too often, these hardworking individuals go unnoticed."

That is absolutely spot on, isn't it?
