Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some villages where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Marblehead is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Marblehead is a village of sales and office workers, managers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Marblehead who work in office and administrative support (22.00%), management occupations (19.32%) and sales jobs (9.05%).
There are quite a few people in the armed forces living in Marblehead, and when you visit or drive around town, you will see military people in and out of uniform, shopping, enjoying life, and being part of the community.
A relatively large number of people in Marblehead telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 15.57% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. 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.
Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Marblehead is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the village’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.
Residents will find that the village is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Marblehead is worth considering.
