Jobs in Joliet, Illinois, United States

Joliet, Illinois – “The City of Champions” is a laid back town southwest of Chicago, often described by its residents as “having the perks of a small town affordable housing combined with an exciting, Chicago-style nightlife”. Located on the banks Des Plaines River and a home of more than 145.000 residents of mixed origins, it is the 4th most populous city in the state. Historically, the city’s economy revolved around the steel industry and has suffered some economic regress in the 90s.

However, with its ongoing revitalization projects, the city offers manifold job opportunities for professionals in different economic branches such as, construction, food, accommodation, retail and finance.

The Economy of Joliet

Like many Midwestern cities of the “Steel Bell”, Joilet felt the consequences from the decline of the iron and steel industry, suffering a staggering unemployment rate of over 25%. This situation has improved significantly even though at 7.80%, it’s still well above the national average of 5.20%. The city’s largest employers include IKEA, Amazon, several high profile casinos and Saint Joseph Medical Center.

Due to its proximity to Chicago and very affordable housing, in the last decade Joliet has been slowly transforming from a steel-manufacturing center to a commuter town. Even though the officials admit that Joliet still struggles with attracting new business, its aggressive revitalization and redevelopment projects are seeking to remedy this – attracting jobseekers from around the state, which is evident by the city’s steady population growth.

Joliet has also been prominently portrayed in various Hollywood projects with the popular series “Prison Break” having been filmed in Joliet Prison.

Living in Joliet

With median resident age of 33 years, Joliet is a fine choice for those jobseekers who wish to live in a peaceful, laid back atmosphere with continental climate and exciting nightlife.

Many jobseekers choose Joliet exactly because of its cheap housing and highly developed transport infrastructure. Even though many of the residents often choose to work in the neighboring counties, Joliet offers a variety of places for social and cultural enrichment.

Joliet is also served by several school districts and is the home of University of St. Francis. Public transportation is only available in the downtown area, so having your own vehicle is more than necessary.
