Unlike some cities, Omaha isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Omaha are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Omaha is a city of sales and office workers, professionals and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Omaha who work in office and administrative support (15.18%), sales jobs (11.39%) and management occupations (8.58%).

Omaha is a popular destination for single career-starters. One thing that you will notice when you are out and about town is that there is a large population of people who are young, single, educated, and upwardly-mobile career starters out at restaurants, listening to live music, and enjoying other activities. They are a real visible part of the culture of Omaha. This makes Omaha a good place to live for young professionals. With so many people in this demographic, Omaha presents many opportunities for single professionals to enjoy themselves, socialize, and to create lasting relationships.
