Chicago vs. San Francisco Jobs

Moving to Chicago

If you’re considering trading in the Golden City for the Windy City, rest assured that Chicago offers a promising job market, as well as an ideal living situation.

The Luxury Living team is here to compare Chicago vs. San Francisco jobs so that you can feel more confident in making the big move.

Why Moving to Smaller Tech Hub is Beneficial

While the Bay Area is known as the leading tech hub, Chicago also offers an excellent tech  market.

Although the size of the market is smaller in the Windy City, this can serve as an advantage for prospective job seekers.

Chicago attracts high-tech jobs with lower living costs, unique talent pools, and geographic diversity.

As an employee, it may be easier to stand out and move upwards in a smaller market, especially with less competition.

Perks of Working in Chicago

Along with an attractive job market, working in Chicago offers plenty of other benefits,

For starters, the cost of living is significantly less in Chi-town. You will quickly find that your money will stretch much further if you make a move from San Francisco.

On average, San Francisco is nearly 56 percent more expensive than Chicago.

The difference in housing costs is even higher, with homes running 131% more expensive in San Francisco. This means that it may be more practical to find a home with more bells and whistles in Chicago.

Working in Chicago also opens the doors to an incredible food scene.

Chicago is known as a food haven, boasting a wide variety of international and delicious cuisine. From authentic hole-in-the-wall joints to world-famous restaurants, Chicago has it all.

LLCR Location to the Biggest Companies
