Normal is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 89.22% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Normal is a town of sales and office workers, professionals and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Normal who work in sales jobs (14.69%), office and administrative support (13.16%) and teaching (10.35%).

Normal 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 Normal 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. Normal’s economy is one such example of this.
Not only is Normal a town 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.
One of the benefits of Normal is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 17.91 minutes, which is substantially less than the national average. Not only does this mean that the drive to work is less aggravating, but noise and pollution levels are lower as a result.
