Montana offering $125K salary to hire a business recruiter – $500,000 budget to recruit biz to state


The state is advertising for a business attractions manager, a job that will pay $125,000 a year to travel the country promoting Montana as good place to start or expand a business.

The Department of Commerce also has $500,000 to support the effort, which includes touting new tax incentives that were passed by the 2021 Legislature.

Officials say the recruiter would be seeking companies that would create long-term, sustainable, good-paying jobs in Montana. A University of Montana economist says new tax policies may not lead to businesses moving to Montana.

Patrick Barkey says most job growth takes place at existing businesses.
