Occupations and Workforce
Osteen is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs. Overall, Osteen is a town of service providers, sales and office workers and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Osteen who work in office and administrative support (18.84%), maintenance occupations (13.15%) and management occupations (12.42%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 11.39% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
