Despite a recent brush with bankruptcy, Harrisburg continues to be a boomtown for job seekers. Health care and state government, two of the city’s largest employers, always seem to need new blood. WellSpan Health, PinnacleHealth and the Penn State Hershey Medical Center are all hiring in Pennsylvania’s capital for positions ranging from nurse and physical therapist to systems manager. Harrisburg’s health care workers make $66,600 annually, on average. Thirteen percent of the city works in government, where salaries vary but managers can easily make more than $100,000.
