Raleigh is North Carolina’s capital and second largest city, having a metropolitan population of 1,448,411 people. The current median household income for Raleigh is $85,303. Raleigh is dotted everywhere with established, old oak trees – making it a very colorful city in the autumn. Raleigh has a long established scientific research park, known as Research Triangle Park or “Research Triangle,” where over 300 companies, 65,000 workers and three universities (North Carolina State University, Duke University, and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) convene across multiple counties on 7000 acres amongst a large pine forest to conduct mostly high-tech research and development. If you work in Raleigh, there a good chance you work in the Research Triangle. The greater Raleigh metro area is home to and hosts multiple major employers, including Siemens, Red Hat, IBM, WakeMed, PRA Health Sciences, CentOS, BMC, First Citizens Bank, Total Quality Logistics and many others!
