State Overview

The state of Illinois’ jobs market has been recovering since the last recession with some sectors such as finance and manufacturing being the hardest hit. Illinois employment consists of over six millions workers with the bulk of the jobs being located in the Chicago metropolitan area. The state is strategically well-placed to serve as a distribution hub for manufacturing and this is partly the reason why factory employment is prevalent throughout the state. Hiring rate has been improving in recent years with 2010 seeing peak unemployment of nearly twelve percent. As of the second quarter of 2012 unemployment had improved to a slightly under nine percent. The manufacturing sector has recently started picking up as of the first quarter of 2013.

Largest sectors

Chicago typically has the highest amount of white collar jobs due to large financial, education and service sectors in this city. Engineers and welders are also in demand in Chicago due to it being one of the largest railroad transportation hubs in the United States. Manufacturing, engineering, maintenance and machinery jobs are prevalent throughout the state in most of the larger cities such as Decatur, Champaign, Kankakee, Peoria, Rockford, Springfield and Bloomington.
