Whether you live here now and are seeking employment or will be relocating here soon to begin the job search, one good place to start looking for inspiration for your next career move is a list of top employers in Champaign-Urbana.
This list is in order by how many employees each business has, and while these numbers do change over the years, this list should be reasonably accurate. Now that I've made my disclaimer, let's begin!

Naturally, there are many, many other employers in Champaign-Urbana, so if you're not looking for a job related to education or medicine (did you notice the trend?) don't worry. Champaign-Urbana has much more to offer.
One place I always had luck finding a job was through Express Employment Professionals. Often times what you'll find with them is temporary positions, but those jobs can turn into full-time positions if you're patient and do good work (I am proof of this). If I were currently looking for a job, I wouldn't hesitate to go over and talk with them.
For those of you out there seeking employment right now, I wish you the best of luck in your search!
