Living and Working in Chicagoland

A City for Everyone

The Second City. The Windy City. Chiberia. Whatever you may choose to call it, the city of Chicago is the third most populous city in the United States, and the biggest in the Midwest. Chicago has 77 official neighborhoods within the city boundaries, making this a diverse metropolis, providing endless things to discover every day. The city and greater Chicagoland area are home to some of the world’s best foods, museums, architecture and shopping. 

Businesses Call Chicago Their Home

Companies choose Chicago for its tremendous talent, central location and economic strength. Chicago and the surrounding metropolitan area are home to the third largest labor pool in the United States with approximately 4.6 million workers. This Midwest city is also a major world financial center, with the second largest central business district in the United States. The Chicagoland metro area is also home to more than 400 major corporate headquarters including 37 Fortune 500 businesses in 2016 and is ranked one of the top North American cities for international headquarters.


Chicago is at the center of the east-west nexus joining Europe and Asia. The city’s two airports, Midway International Airport, and the much larger O’Hare International Airport, handle more than 1,400 daily departures, with non-stop service to 200+ locations worldwide, offering Chicagoans endless travel destination options. Chicago is also a popular destination for conventions. Combining popular conventions, and the large businesses and corporations in and around Chicago, over 11.65 million domestic business travelers visited in 2015, according to Choose Chicago.

Most Diversified Economy in the U.S.

Chicago is not a one-industry town; the city’s diversification keeps the city’s economy strong. The city itself has one of the world’s largest and most diversified economies, with more than four million employees and generating an annual gross regional product (GRP) of over $561 billion. Being one of the most diverse economies in the nation, Chicago is a key player in every job sector, from risk management innovation to manufacturing and information technology to health services.
