Iowa

The state of Iowa is a part of the country referred to as America’s Heartland or even America’s Breadbasket. That’s because this state, along with the ones around it depend heavily on agriculture for industry. While agriculture is the main resource for income and careers in Iowa, over the past few years, other industries have become prevalent, including manufacturing, financial, biotechnology, green energy resources, and processing. By diversifying the industries, the state of Iowa continues to build a strong economy, which is good for anyone who is interested in pursuing a career.
