Occupations and Workforce

Garrett Park is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 91.39% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Garrett Park is a town of professionals, managers, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Garrett Park who work in management occupations (19.41%), teaching (12.45%), and the sciences (11.72%).

And if you like science, one thing you'll find is that Garrett Park has lots of scientists living in town - whether they be life scientists, physical scientists (like astronomers), or social scientists (like geographers!). So, if you're scientific-minded, you might like it here too.

Of important note, Garrett Park is also a town of artists. Garrett Park has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Garrett Park’s character.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 13.77% of the workforce.

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.
