Some people have brought up that fact that Wyoming has less projected job growth than most of the other states. This is true. However, even though Ft. Collins is not in any of the FSP possible states, it is only 40 min. from Wyoming and has tons of jobs.
The Ft. Collins MSA has over 260,000 people
Here are some statistics on the Ft. Collins MSA from the Northern Colorado Economic Development Council:
The Ft. Collins MSA is one of the 10 fastest growing MSAs in the country
The Ft. Collins MSA expects 215,000 new jobs between 1997 and 2010
Median Income is $58,200
Major Employers: Colorado State University, ConAgra Beef, Hewlett-Packard, Agilent Technologies, Poudre Valley Health Systems, Eastman Kodak, Wal-Mart, State Farm Insurance, StarTek, Inc., Woodward, Advanced Energy, Teledyne WaterPik, McKee Medical Center, Anheuser-Busch, and Celestica
According to FAIR, the Ft. Collins MSA is projected to have 533,000 people by 2025.

I know Ft. Collins is not in Wyoming. However, I feel that this solves any question people might have about not enough jobs in Wyoming. Clearly, all of the states, even Vermont, have enough jobs for 20,000 hard working people. However, some people still question this, for whatever strange reason. The ability to get more jobs within 40 min. of Wyoming than within most of the other FSP states, should answer the problem to those folks. Wyoming is not isolated from the rest of the world. It is one of the least isolated candidate states. As long as you are able to drive a little, you will be able to get a high paying job in your current field. There is no need to worry
