Jobs in Champaign, Illinois, United States

Champaign, Illinois is a city located in the east-central part of the state, home to more than 85.000 residents based on the 2010 census – making it the 10th most populous city in the state. It is an important agricultural, educational, IT and tech hub in the “Illinois Silicon Prairie” – San Francisco’s Midwestern counterpart. Champaign is an interesting amalgamation of a “Midwest small town” combined with “your typical student city”.

Champaign offers a diversified job market with many job opportunities in agriculture, IT, tech research and development, education as well as food, accommodation, transport and retail.

Economy of Champaign

Champaign has strong economic roots in agriculture. However, in recent decades the agriculture has been overshadowed by the strong presence of the University of Illinois which with almost 11.000 employees is the largest employer in the city. Many “Fortune 500” companies such as Sony, IBM, ADM, Caterpillar Inc., State Farm and Dow Chemical Company. Many of these companies are also affiliated with the university itself.

Healthcare, transportation, retail and accommodation also have a strong presence in the town’s economic output. With an unemployment rate of 5.50%, it’s slightly above the national average of 5.20%. The city has a healthy job growth of 1.53% with future predicted job growth of 37.56%.

Champaign attracts students and young jobseekers who are looking for a job in a large educational and research centers.

Living in the Silicon Prairie

Most of the urban development in and around the university campus. The intellectual climate attracts highly educated jobseekers who wish to experience the charms and simplicity of living of a Midwest college town. The Art Deco architecture and amazing sceneries are a magnet for those people who enjoy a clean and green environment. It has been ranked as 10th on the list of “Best Green Cities”. Several interstate and state highways pass through Champaign but the real beauty of the city stems from the fact that it’s also easily accessible by bike. Apart from the university, the city is served by Campaign Unit 4 school district.

However, with somewhat segregated communities, (the northern part of the town is almost exclusively African-American), the city has been suffering from above average crime rates. The cultural venues and nightlife are uniquely tailored to pander to students and young adults.

All in all, Champaign is a great place to live and work.
