Known for its ranches, farms, and a recent boom in its oil economy, North Dakota is not so well-known for project management professional jobs or competitive salaries. In fact, it ranks last in the country for its wages for industrial production managers. Your best bet is working as a construction manager in Grand Forks, where the median annual salary is over $81,000, or 98% of the national average. The pay rate for this field dips to about $60,000 in Bismarck. Fargo may have inspired a Coen Brothers movie, but it is uninspiring in its average salary of under $65,000 for industrial production managers.
