Which Chicago Employers Provide the Most Jobs? Plus, Helpful Apps for Illinoisans

Each year, Crain’s Chicago Business magazine releases a list of the city’s largest employers. And as you’ll see, a sizable chunk of Chicago’s workers are employed by either the state, federal, city or county governments.

Chicago is far from being “a city upon a hill” in a state hard hit by unemployment. A recent U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation report was sharply critical of Chicago’s business climate. However, the Chicago-Joliet-Naperville metro division is still host to the most jobs in Illinois — 3,764,200 in April, according to preliminary data from the Illinois Department of Economic Security.

Interested in a job in Chicago? You may want to check out these 25 employers that provide the most jobs to Illinoisans.

While it might not be best to apply for a job at those employers from your phone, your phone can be a handy device for surviving in Illinois if you have these helpful apps for Illinoisans on it.
