Gainesville, FL Employment Information

Gainesville, Florida Overview

This town bleeds orange and blue, with the nation's 7th largest university campus (by enrollment) - the University of Florida, at the center of its existence. The city commissioners are looking to attract professionals to a gentrification project they are undertaking between downtown Gainesville and the university campus. This may slow some of the suburban sprawl the area has experienced. The area around Gainesville is largely rural.

Gainesville promotes the use of solar power by providing small businesses and homeowners with a favorable tariff to help supply electricity to the city power grid. Gainesville's contribution to pop culture is the sports drink Gatorade, created there in the 1960s for the UF football team, and UF still receives a share of the drink's profits.

Gainesville Job Opportunities

Like most large university towns in smaller metropolitan areas, Gainesville's college-educated population outpaces its entry-level job opportunities. As expected, top opportunities include education and healthcare jobs in Gainesville. Some common employers include the University of Florida, UFHealth, Alachua County School Board, the Veterans Affairs Medical Center and the City of Gainesville.

Nursing and other healthcare professions top the hottest Gainesville jobs. There are also many positions available in food service.

Gainesville Employment Trends

Gainesville's weak job market is due in part to the fact that the areas surrounding it are largely rural, limiting the amount of non-farm jobs available. While it has direct access to Ocala, Jacksonville, and Orlando, all are too far to commute to for daily employment. The unemployment rate is around 2 percent lower than the national average.

Gainesville is the cultural, educational, and commercial center for North Central Florida. Several companies have their headquarters here, including 352 Inc., Atlantic.Net, EnCor Biotechnology, Trendy Entertainment and Walrusoft.

Gainesville Cost of Living

The cost of living in Gainesville is 10.1 percent less than the rest of the country. Its status as a university town means dining opportunities are plentiful and inexpensive. Florida residents also don't pay income tax. The median household income ($28,914) is considerably less in Gainesville than it is throughout Florida ($45,040), as a large pool of college-educated employees keeps salaries low.

While the median house price is $127,900 (25 percent less than the national average), Gainesville residents pay a higher property tax rate to offset the fact that university property is tax-exempt. Transportation costs (1 percent) and groceries (3.3 percent) are slightly higher than the national average, making Gainesville one of the few towns where it may actually be less expensive to eat out than in.
