The Triangle is a booming tech hub filled with pharmaceutical, software, and major STEM companies. Raleigh is the No. 5 job market in the US, meaning there are lots of employment opportunities, not just in tech.

Whether you’re new to the area, looking for a career change, or are just curious about other Triangle-based businesses, here are just a few non-STEM focused companies headquartered in the Triangle — with links to open job listings.

Advance Auto Parts | 4200 Six Forks Rd., Raleigh | As Raleigh’s only Fortune 500 company, you can join the day-to-day operations at this automotive parts manufacturer’s HQ location. The company reported $500 million in profits last year — and they’re hiring for hybrid, remote, and in-person positions from accounting to sales.

Golden Corral | 5400 Trinity Rd., Ste. 309, Raleigh | Did you know this buffet chain was founded in Raleigh in 1973? This nearly-400 location restaurant’s corporate HQ near PNC Arena isn’t hiring at the moment, but stay tuned for potential openings.
