Jobs in Skokie, Illinois, United States

Located in the Chicago suburbs Skokie famously claims to be the “World’s Largest Village”. Initially founded in 1888 Skokie received the first significant boost to its population in the 1920’s housing boom. Initially Skokie’s population comprised of settlers from Germany and Luxembourg, following World War Two large numbers of Jewish families chose to settle in the area.

Skokie experienced a second noticeable growth spurt in the 1950’s when the national baby boom saw young families looking for suitable places to settle. The friendly atmosphere of Skokie combined with its good transport links to Chicago made it an obvious choice. Today these transport links mean that Skokie continues to be a popular choice for people who need to commute to Chicago.

Skokie Has Business At It’s Heart

Skokie is the base for many manufacturing and retail companies. Mapmaker Rand McNally, Topco and Peapod all have their headquarters in Skokie. More recently Skokie has begun to attract employers in the health science field.

Forest City Enterprises’s take over of the old Pfizer laboratories in the town sparked more investment in the sector, which has, in turn, brought more jobs to the area. As well as the Illinois Science and Technology Park, which is a campus of research installations, Skokie is also home to the NorthShore University HealthSystem.

Despite these many opportunities if you do find yourself having to travel to work Skokie has many excellent commuter links. Chicago’s Yellow Line train service runs regularly meaning that you can be in the heart of the city in just under an hour. The CTA and Pace bus routes also regularly service the area while Interstate 94 and Edens Expressway both traverse western Skokie.

A Vibrant Cultural Hub

Skokie’s Westfield Old Orchard Shopping Centre has a range of shops as well as many restaurants catering for a variety of tastes. Meanwhile the Illinois Sculpture Garden is situated in Skokie between Dempster Street and Touhy Avenue and has over 70 statues by many notable artists.

Skokie is also home to the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts, which houses Centre East and Northlight Theatre as well as the Skokie Valley Symphony Orchestra. This means that you can enjoy many diverse and culturally engaging performances throughout the year. Reflecting the area’s strong links to the Jewish community the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center is also based in Skokie.
