This is the land of elk, antelope, and deer, not too much for project management professionals. The state has less than 2,000 workers in PMP fields, mostly in two metropolitan areas, Billings and Missoula. Not a single position in project management makes over the U.S. median salary.

Billings has low wages, as low as 84% of the national average for architectural and engineering managers, 73% for computer and information systems managers, and 71% for natural sciences managers.
