Jobs in Rockford, Illinois, United States

Rockford, Illinois has been dubbed as the “textbook American city”. The Forest City is located in northern Illinois, on the banks of Rock River, it is the most populous city in the state outside the Chicago Metro Area. Historically, its economy has been largely based in the manufacturing of heavy tools and machinery. With the decline of the iron and steel industry, the city has suffered economic decline similar to that of the other cities in the so called “Rust Belt”. To tackle this decline, the city’s economy has gone through a process of diversification into several manufacturing branches, from automotive to aerospace, as well as significant development of the health service sector.

The economic revival of the Forest City

Even though the Forest City has suffered some population loss at the end of the 20th century, it fares far better compared to other Rust Belt cities, such as Detroit. A home of more than 150.000 residents, Rockford offers various job opportunities to those seeking to experience the life in the upper Midwest. Aerospace industries remain dominant in Rockford’s economic output. UTC Aerospace Systems and Woodward are its largest representatives.

However, with the construction of several hospital centers and other revitalization investments, the city has opened its doors to jobseekers who are interested in finding jobs in health service and construction sectors – with Swedish American Hospital being the largest employer. As a relatively large population center, Rockford also offers job opportunities in retail, accommodation and food services.

A worker’s life in Rockford

Rockford’s charm stems from its unique blend of architectural influences, from Gothic Revival to Art Deco and modernism. Being placed between Chicago and Galena, Rockford has highly developed transport infrastructure. Several highways, and bus lanes stretch through its territory as well as its own Chicago Rockford International Airport. The city also the home of many sites of historic and cultural significance, not the least of which are the Coronado Theatre and the Mendelssohn Club – the oldest music club in the US.

The median resident age of the city is 36 years. The city has racially diverse citizenry with the majority being Caucasian (around 60%). It offers a wide variety of cultural and entertainment venues. The city has its own school district. The temperate climate and vibrant forest nature, make Rockford an attractive destination for those jobseekers who wish to escape the large ‘Concrete Jungles’.
