With an increasingly large nominal economy, jobs in Mexico are similar to those of most Western nations, with many citizens working in the farming, tobacco, iron and steel, chemical, tourist and telecommunications industries. Other thriving industries include mining, food and beverages, textiles and teaching.
Contrary to many Americans' views of Mexico, it is not a developing country and has an economy very similar to that of the United States and Canada, with a nominal GDP of around 1.3 trillion USD in 2014.
Though the Mexican economy is operating less efficiently than it could be, it is very similar to other developed nations with some of the largest multinational corporations continuing to work in the country.
Many global recruitment agencies also operate in Mexico, including some of the largest in the world, such as Manpower and Adecco.
