Jobs in Danville, Illinois, United States

Danville is a city located in Vermilion County in the US State of Illinois, where it is also the county seat. It has a population of just over 33,000 people.

The City is located 146 miles to the south of Chicago, and 95 miles to the northwest of Indianapolis.

A City Finding its Feet Again

Danville was founded in 1827, and initially its most important local industry was coal mining, with many residents and local businesses heavily involved in this industry.

With the closing of the mines during the 1980’s and 1990’s, the city’s economic and industrial base was heavily affected and unemployment was rife.

In recent years, the city has worked hard to revive the city’s fortunes. One of the more ingenious ideas has involved converting many of the former mines into lakes to create fishing and recreational facilities.

The city in fact maintains around 17 parks and recreational facilities, a remarkably high number for a city its size.

The premier shopping site in the city is the 525,000 square foot Village mall, whilst many smaller shops and restaurants have recently opened in the community during a period of sustained redevelopment beginning in 2013.

The US Bureau of Economic Analysis has stated that Danville is the cheapest place to live in the US.

Key Facts:

  • Median Age: 36
  • Median Household Income: $34,757
  • Median Property Value: $66,200
  • Cost of Living: 16% lower than state average, 18% lower than national average
  • Unemployment Rate: 6.6%
  • Crime Rate: 164% higher than national average

Blue Collar Employment

A number of manufacturers are present in Danville, producing a range of goods from stamped metal and fiberglass sheets for roofing, through to high tech manufacturers such as Automation International, who manufacture automated machinery for use in factories the world over.

There is also a large medical facility in the city, Presence United Samaritans Medical Center as well as several headquarters/regional offices of health insurance providers.

This means that of the around 12,000 jobs in the city, a full 18% are in healthcare and related industries, with 16% in manufacturing. Retail and food service provide another 19% of the available jobs.

Professional, Tech Services and Administration are quite low at only 5% of total workforce. This goes someway to explaining the low median wage for the city, as there are quite few tech and specialist roles within the local workforce.
