Jobs in Oak Park, Illinois, United States

Oak Park, Illinois is a village located west of Chicago and a home of more than 50.000 residents. The village is a part of Chicago Metro Area and is a place where people of diverse origins meet, intermingle and exchange cultural values. The birthplace of Ernest Hemmingway and other famous people, Oak Park attracts people who wish to enjoy the peace and quiet of a small town and the proximity of a large urban area.

Oak Park is often called a “white collar” village since most of its workforce is employed in white collar jobs. Education, administration, management and finance are the branches in which Oak Park offers the most job opportunities – and its pleasant location and vibrant nature have attracted people throughout the decades.

Oak Park’s White Collar Economy

Most of Oak Park’s economic output is concentrated in the ‘white-collar’ branches. With more than 90% of its available engaged it office-work, Oak Park has strong presence in administrative support, IT, management, and business.

Oak Park’s unemployment rate is 5.10%, well within the national average and with a household income of more than 78.000$, the village stands well on the affluence scale compared to the rest of the state. Oak Park’s sales taxes are at 10% and income taxes at 3.75%. Oak Park also offers job opportunities for those jobseekers and professionals who wish to work from home, as almost 7.50% of the workforce are telecommuters.

Oak Park’s Quiet Life

The village is a home of mostly affluent, highly educated individuals. This reflects on Oak Park’s way of life. It’s served by 2 school districts (District 97 and District 200), has a diverse and widespread public transportation system (Blue Line, Green Line) and is connected to Chicago via Eisenhower Expressway. This means that the average commute time is over 30 minutes and congestions are possible during rush hours.

However, Oak Park’s myriad parks, bicycle-friendly streets, attracts those individuals who wish to avoid using their cars altogether. With median age of 39 years, the village is a prime destination for those professionals with already established careers who wish to experience the peace and quiet of a suburb, yet be close enough to a big metro center.
