WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) -- A Job Service North Dakota report shows the state has had at least 20,000 jobs available for six straight months.
The report says North Dakota had 23,500 open jobs in July.
North Dakota Economic Development Foundation chairman Wally Goulet says the job numbers speak to the strength and growth of the state's economy.
An oil boom in the western part of the state has driven the economy and growth in recent years. But Goulet says North Dakota is not just about oil jobs and notes that the economy is growing across the state.
Office and administrative support jobs represent the largest group of open jobs with 2,577 positions available in July. There were 2,512 transportation and material moving jobs that month.
