Welcome back! You’ve taken a much-needed summer vacation, and Labor Day is in the rearview mirror. Autumn is right around the corner.

Oh, and that new job you promised you were going to find? Well, it hasn’t happened yet. You’re still wasting hours commuting, which has been linked to poor physical and mental health. You deserve better.

You live in Loudoun County, where we want to help you find the dream job that you’ve been searching for. Did you know Loudoun has more than 12,000 employers, and that more than 32,000 available jobs were advertised in the last year alone?

If that’s not enough, occupations in Loudoun requiring either a graduate degree or certificate are projected to grow by more than 2 percent every year. If you’re part of the nearly 50 percent of Loudouners who leave the county for work every morning, there’s a good chance that you’re driving past your future job right now.
