Jobs in Springfield, Illinois, United States

Springfield, Illinois – “The Flower City” is the state capital of Illinois. With a population of more than 115.000 residents, it’s the 6th populous city and is located in central Illinois. Life in Springfield revolves around politics and government, as the state of Illinois is the single biggest employer with more than 30.000 jobs. As an administrative, cultural and government center, it attracts those jobseekers who are interested in the law, administration, politics and finance sectors as well as healthcare, agriculture and construction.

The city has been a place of residence to many notable figures in the American history such as Abraham Lincoln and Barack Obama. However, its abnormally high crime rate has been a deterrent to many jobseekers who have been considering the city as a place of residence.

The ‘Utopia’ in “The Flower City”

As noted by the great American poet and city native Vachel Lindsay at the start of the 20th century – Springfield showed signs of poor development of the private sector. The economy is largely sustained by the state government and the healthcare sector. However, the low costs of living combined with relatively stable and secure job market, attract those jobseekers who wish to dedicate their lives to administration, politics, law and finance.

As a state capital, it has highly developed transportation infrastructure with more than 15.000 jobs in this branch. Its relatively low unemployment rate of 5.10% can be the deciding factor for those who consider moving to Springfield.

Springfield is a city whose population is majority native and working within the government apparatus. Many immigrants label the city as “a welfare city and the residents like it that way”.

The city has is served by School District No, 186 and is the home of Southern Illinois University’s School of Medicine. Springfield has diverse cultural and entertainment venues of historical significance like the Hoogland Center for the Arts, Springfield Municipal Opera and Sangamon Auditorium.
