Auburn is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 87.77% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average.

There are especially a lot of people living in Auburn who work in teaching (15.74%), management occupations (10.94%) and office and administrative support (10.71%).

Auburn is also a major college town with a large number of people who are 18 years or older and attending college. As is often the case in college towns, the many students that live in Auburn have a strong influence on the local culture and entertainment scene, which may seem dormant by comparison in the summer months when much of the student population is away. In the fall, the return of students has a reinvigorating effect on the community. Because colleges are lasting institutions, they have a stabilizing effect on the economy by providing direct local benefits such as jobs for faculty and staff and spending by students. Auburn’s economy is one such example of this.
Not only is Auburn a city with many college students, but it also retains many recent graduates who are looking to start new careers, creating a decent-sized population of people who are young, single, educated, and upwardly-mobile. This makes it a good choice for other relocating single professionals. Here, these young singles will find many others like themselves, with opportunities for friendships, socializing, romance, and fun.
