Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Hazelhurst is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Hazelhurst is a town of sales and office workers, professionals and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Hazelhurst who work in sales jobs (18.41%), management occupations (10.79%) and office and administrative support (10.26%).
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 9.72% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. 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 Hazelhurst is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Hazelhurst’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Hazelhurst has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Hazelhurst a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
Being a small town, Hazelhurst does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
