Looking for Employment in Clarksville?  Here Are the Top 6 Opportunities

by Janie Curtis

Whether you decide to live in one of the luxurious apartments or one of the cheap apartments in Clarksville, you're going to need a way to pay your rent every month!  But if you haven't found employment in Clarksville just yet, fear not!  This area has been growing for years, and the job opportunities are expected to keep growing.

In order to make your search a little easier, here are the top 6 employment opportunities:

1.  Serve your country

Fort Campbell is actually the Clarksville area's biggest employer.  Even if you're not in the Army, you can serve your country in a small way by getting a job here.  Whether you're a financial expert, looking for clerical work, or have veterinary experience, there are plenty of jobs here that will interest you.

2.  Keep your cool

Trane -- a worldwide heating, ventilating, and air conditioning company -- is the largest private employer in Clarksville, so there are always jobs available at their plant.  You don't necessarily have to work down on the assembly lines, though.  There are also job opportunities for people in management, engineering, and accounting.

3.  Help other businesses succeed

Clarksville's second-largest private employer is Convergys -- a company that helps other companies interact with their customers through things like software, collections, customer service, and marketing.  Whether you're a whiz a technical support, sales, or software engineering, there could be a spot here for you!

4.  Get moving

As of 2012, nearly 20% of Clarksville's residents were employed in the transportation and material moving machine industry.  If you're looking for a job in Clarksville that doesn't require a college education, this might be the perfect industry to dive into!  With one of these jobs, you'd be responsible for doing things like transporting construction materials to different job sites or using the actual construction equipment itself (like a bulldozer or an excavating machine).

5.  Teach the next generation

There are three dozen public schools, several private schools, and a number of colleges around Clarksville, so if you're interested in being a teacher, this is a great place to live!  Even if you don't want to be in the classroom itself, there are plenty of other opportunities in the education industry -- from working as a guidance counselor, to working in the cafeteria.

6.  Help your neighbors stay healthy

Healthcare is one of the biggest industries in Clarksville.  Whether you want to work in a doctor's office, in a hospital, or in a psychiatric setting, there are plenty of opportunities to choose from!

Job Opportunities in Clarksville -- What Are Your Best Bets Here?

 

If you're thinking of moving to Clarksville, TN, you obviously need a job to work at once you get here! Luckily, the Clarksville area has some unique opportunities that appeal to people in a wide variety of fields.

If you're starting your job search from scratch, consider these 5 options to be your best bets:

 

1. Make your career climate-controlled

Clarksville's largest private employer is Trane -- yes, the same Trane that makes all of those air conditioners, HVACs, and ventilating equipment. There's a big plant in town where you can have a hands-on job on the assembly lines, or you can apply for some of the "higher-up" jobs -- like the openings in management, IT, and accounting.

 

2. Help the next generation move towards the "real world"

Austin Peay State University is another one of Clarksville's biggest employers, so the perfect job opportunity may be waiting for you on campus! You don't necessarily have to be a professor or an academic advisor to work here, though. The school needs everything from HR professionals, to security guards, to payroll professionals, to public relations experts to function on a daily basis. You may not get summers off like the students do, but you could wind up with a great job!

 

3. Work with even younger students

The Clarksville-Montgomery County School System has nearly 4,000 employees, so as you can imagine, there are all kinds of opportunities here! Again, you don't have to be a teacher to make an impact. Your work could serve students just as well if you were a custodian, a building maintenance professional, a school nurse, or a food services assistant.

 

4. Indulge your sense of patriotism

Fort Campbell plays a major role in Clarksville's culture, but if you want it to play a major role in YOUR life, look for a job here! The Army base is the biggest employer in the area, but you don't have to enlist in order to work here. There are plenty of job opportunities for civilians on the base -- including accounting professionals, clerical assistants, and even veterinarians. So, no matter what you're interested in, there's likely a job at Fort Campbell that caters to it. And, as an added benefit, you'll get to go to work every day knowing that you're helping the bravest men and women do their jobs!

 

5. Help Clarksville grow even more

Clarksville is one of the fastest-growing cities in the entire country -- which means that there is a constant demand for new homes and new office buildings. If you've got experience in construction or development, you could wind up with more projects than you know what to do with!
