Jobs in Allentown, Pennsylvania, United States

Allentown – “Silk City” is located in central-eastern Pennsylvania. As a home of more than 120.000 racially diversified residents, it’s the 3rd most populous city in the state. As such, it’s a major cultural, administrative, educational, urban, technological and political center. Historically, Allentown had a strong economic footprint in manufacturing, but in recent years it has diversified into service-based economy.

The city’s mild climate, Lehigh River and the astonishing amount of greenspace area, make it an attractive destination for those individuals who prefer outdoor activities and entertainment. Compared to the other Metro Areas in its vicinity (like New York or Philadelphia), Allentown feels like a suburban city.

Service Based Economy

Even though there are many privately owned businesses in Allentown, the major employers remain the Allentown School District with more than 2.900 employees, Lehigh County, City of Allentown, Sacred heart Hospital and Lehigh Valley Hospital. With its high unemployment of 7.5% and median household income of less than 37.000$, Allentown positions as a lower-middleclass city.

However, Allentown also houses several corporations such as Air Products & Chemicals, Crayola, Olympus, Rodale and Just Born.

Affordable and Diversified Housing Options

As the 3rd largest city, Allentown offers a plethora of housing options, from studio apartments in high-rise buildings in the downtown area, to lavish houses with big yards on the outskirts. This, and the relatively low costs of living, make the city attractive for jobseekers and individuals from across all strata of society. However, at times the city might feel a little cramped, which reflects in the relatively long average commute time of 25 minutes.

Rich Cultural Life

Even though it can’t really compete with New York or Philadelphia, Allentown has a wide variety of venues for cultural entertainment – movie theaters, cafes, art galleries and concert venues. Additionally, the large number of higher education institutions located in Allentown, contribute to enriching the cultural scene of the city.

As most of the metro areas, Allentown offers high quality services and a wide variety of amenities for its residents. With median age of 32 years and low crime rate, Allentown is perfect for those jobseekers and professionals who wish to form and raise a family in a safe environment.
