[ARCHIVED] Geneva Named Second Best Illinois City For Jobs

Flower State Street

The City of Geneva was ranked the second best community for jobs in Illinois, according to a recent study from the personal finance outlet WalletHub.

The company rated the job-seeker friendliness of more than 120 Illinois cities based on 16 key indicators of labor-market health, ranging from employment growth to median monthly starting salary to unemployment rate.

Geneva's combined "job market" and "socioeconomic environment" category scores placed the City just fractions outside of first place. Geneva rated well in the following areas of the study:

Median annual income
Percentage of workers with private health insurance
Annual transportation costs
Industry variety
Disability friendliness of employers
Time spent working & commuting
Unemployment rate for high school graduates
Social life

The top five rated communities in the study were St. Charles, Geneva, Grayslake, Libertyville and Schaumburg. The full rankings and description of the company's methodology can be found on WalletHub's website.
