Its location on the Wicomico River and proximity to major cities like Baltimore, Washington D.C, Philadelphia and Norfolk have contributed significantly to its growth. Even in the age of the early settlers, the port of Salisbury was used extensively for trade and commerce. Today it has business interests in poultry, electronics, manufacturing, agriculture and shipbuilding. Education is also a primary sector with Salisbury University being among the top employers. Other nationals and multinationals who have made Salisbury their home include Verizon, Pepsi, The Knowland group and others. The recent cleaning and revitalization of many of the city?s neighbourhoods and the adjoining areas has given it a new lease of life. It is now reinventing itself as a cultural center promoting, music, dance, and various festivals. The city also maintains several parks and playgrounds which make it a good place to unwind. Professionals seeking employment here would do well with certifications such as PRINCE2, PMP, PMI-ACP, CSM, CEH, CSPO, Scrum & Agile, MS courses and others.
