Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some villages where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Chaumont is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Chaumont is a village of professionals, service providers and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Chaumont who work in sales jobs (12.26%), food service (10.06%) and management occupations (9.75%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.33% 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.
