Working in Vermont

Vermont has an interesting mix of employers from large, national brands and companies to entrepreneurs and start-ups, and everything in between. Nearly 80,000 companies in Vermont are considered ‘small business,’ defined as having 500 or fewer employees.

Vermont’s largest employers tend to be in education, healthcare, tech, the ski industry, and state government.  Northwestern Vermont is home to many of the state’s marquis employers, including:

The state also boasts many socially responsible businesses that value a triple bottom line of people, planet, and profits, or Certified B Corporations. Joining Ben & Jerry’s, Burton, and Cabot Creamery are companies like Vermont Creamery, Seventh Generation, and Lake Champlain Chocolates.
