Byrd Township Reviews

I have been working in one particular job field for almost four years now and am sick of it. I have been looking for an entirely new job field that pays much more but is difficult due to all the different varieties of work fields there are here. Most people are either doctors, sales agents, or work in another type of profession.

The businesses in this town are starting to grow and become more like a St. Louis feel. We are getting more bigger named restaurants and sporting goods outlets around town. The goal is to make it the biggest attraction stop between Memphis and St. Louis and that is exactly what it is doing. Cape Girardeau being a college town also helps tremendously with Southeast Missouri State University being in town.
