Jobs in Mount Vernon, New York, United States

Mount Vernon is a city located in Westchester County in the US State of New York. It is located to the immediate North of the city – just above the borough of the Bronx – and it therefore considered a suburb of the City of New York.

It has a population of just fewer than 68,000 people, making it the eighth most populous city in the state.

A Split City

The best way to describe the city, in general terms at least is to say that it is split into two distinct sections. Southside Mount Vernon is very urban in layout and appearance, closely resembling the nearby Bronx.

The north of the town is far more residential and suburban in layout and appearance. The city also boasts a vibrant downtown business district that in addition to bars & restaurants is also home to major public buildings like City Hall, the main Public Library and the central Post Office.

The city boasts a number of parks and recreation fields, the largest being the county owned and maintained Wilson’s Wood Park, which covers 23 acres. Education is provided by 11 elementary, 3 middle and 3 high schools.

Key Facts:

  • Median Age: 37.4
  • Median Household Income: $50,952
  • Median Property Value: $361,700
  • Cost of Living: 11% higher than state average, 33% higher than national average
  • Unemployment Rate: 6.2%
  • Crime Rate: 14% lower than national average

A Growing Jobs Market

The city has predominately been a “Bedroom Community” for many years, with a great number of residents commuting daily to jobs in New York City itself.

However, in recent years the local government has taken great pains to promote the local jobs market in the city, and in the first quarter of the 21st Century (so from 2000 to 2005) the city economy grew by an average 20% per year.

Whilst that rapid expansion has slowed somewhat in recent years, the local jobs market is healthier than it has been for many years and it still growing – at a rate of 2% in 2015.

The largest single employers are the local school district (1,000 strong workforce), Michael Anthony Jewelers (700) and Mount Vernon Hospital (700).

Mount Vernon Hospital contains a range of comprehensive services, including a busy and expanding ER department and it is also a teaching hospital. The area around the hospital contains many medical offices and treatment facilities, bringing patients not just from Mount Vernon but also from nearby Yonkers and the Bronx. The medical sector is the largest employer in town, with around 25% of the workforce engaged in it.

Manufacturing is strong here, and centered on small scale operations making everything from electronics to furniture, and accounts for 5% of local jobs.

Education is 10% of jobs, whilst retail (11%) and food service (6%) reflect a city with a strong commercial sector.

Admin and general office support (6%) plus professional and tech services (6%), public services (6%) and construction (6%) make up the next largest sectors.
