Even if you would prefer not to commute to work every day, Des Plaines still has plenty of options for local employment. The largest portions of the population work in the fields of sales, business, finance, healthcare, construction and production. A few of the local schools as well as Rivers Casino, the Holy Family Medical Center and UOP oil and engineering have the most residents working for them. With an income per capita a few thousand dollars above the national average, comfortable living is also affordable living. If you have kids, there are several public grade schools to get them the basic education they need as well as the higher education campuses of Oakton Community College, Northwestern College and Harper College.
