Considering a move to the Southwest?!
Albuquerque is a gorgeous Southwestern city with mountain views, vibrant festivals, delicious food, and so much more! Whether your idea of fun means cruising down iconic Route 66, soaking in a beautifully painted sunset, skiing the slopes of Sandia Peak, or playing a round of golf, Albuquerque is an oasis in the high desert.
Affordability: A major perk of moving to the desert is the cost of living, which is lower than the national average. Plus, lower property taxes and state income taxes makes New Mexico a cost-effective place to live
Diverse job market: Relocate confidently knowing your significant other and loved ones have a wide range of job opportunities available to them. Aerospace, bioscience, technology, start-ups, healthcare, and energy companies are among some of the prominent industries in the area.
Proud heritage: Located in the homelands of the indigenous Navajo, Pueblo, and Apache peoples, Albuquerque has strong ties to these cultures today. Marvel at sacred symbols designed onto volcano rock or shop for handcrafted jewelry, pottery, beadwork, candles, and skincare from local makers.
Outdoor paradise: Albuquerque is home to 288 public parks, beautiful views, and picturesque landscapes, perfect for nature lovers. Hiking, horseback riding, fishing, and stargazing are popular among locals and tourists visiting New Mexico.
Thriving festival scene: See renowned flamenco dancers at The Festival Flamenco Albuquerque, taste delicious dishes at the National Fiery Foods & Barbeque Show, and join 900,000 spectators at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta.
Food and drink: Albuquerque’s food scene mostly features Indigenous, New Mexican, and Spanish flavors and is full of unique places to eat and locally sourced meals. It’s also home to award-winning breweries, wineries, and distilleries, making for a fun and active nightlife scene.
As you consider your career goals, keep in mind how an opportunity with Del Norte will help you achieve your aspirations.
