Right now there are 9,000 job openings across the state.
And it isn`t just the people in North Dakota who are applying.
When applying for a job, one thing that attracts applicants is whether or not the job is close to home.
But when other states are facing high unemployment rates and hiring has come to a halt in some places, many are moving to North Dakota.
The Relocation Assistance Program that the Department of Commerce has set up helps direct people outside of the state search for job listings here.
The department says it receives calls every day from people across the country looking for work.
One thing it`s also seeing is people who have moved away from North Dakota , are also now coming back home.
"Between 2015 and 2020, we expect a lot of departures from our workforce and that`s going to create a pull for our young people and a need even more to bring in people from outside the state, so we`ve got the structure established now to help accommodate and facilitate that and try to move it along so that we can do a better job of matching up employers with employees," says Shane Goettle, of the North Dakota Department of Commerce.
