Chicago Phlebotomy Jobs Overview

Blood analysis is vital to healthcare, as is blood collection—especially during natural disasters and emergencies. During a crisis, phlebotomy jobs keep the medical system running by drawing blood from people lining up to make donations and transporting it safely to those who need it most. Think about the last time you had blood drawn. If it was a good experience, your phlebotomist was likely skilled, confident, compassionate, and above all else, gentle. What you didn't see behind the scenes was just as important. To ensure your test results would be accurate, your phlebotomist:

  • Had an organized workspace.
  • Was meticulous about how they handled and labeled your blood sample.
  • Recorded precise information to track your sample through the testing process.
  • Followed safety protocol and department procedures to the letter.

Jobs in phlebotomy demand precision along with techniques to reassure anxious patients. In any workday, you could draw blood from a wide range of people, including children, older adults, and those with mental health conditions. You might also assist with urinalysis and glucose testing. Phlebotomy is one of the quickest ways to get into the healthcare field. And it's a job in a very stable industry that continuously needs workers. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projects a 17% growth in phlebotomy jobs over the next 10 years, which is much faster than average.

About Working in Chicago, Illinois

If you're going to Chicago to experience "da Bears," deep-dish pizza, and windy streets, native Chicagoans say "fogetta 'bout it!" While these have made Chicago famous, you'll find many locals eating thin-crust, tavern-style pie. Plus, the city isn't on any list of the windiest cities in the U.S.—a local newspaper named it "The Windy City" after the Chicago elite's propensity toward boastfulness and self-promotion. And while the Chicago jobs list (hit jobs, that is) includes notorious mobsters from Chicago like Al Capone, John Dillinger, and Baby Face Nelson, linguists are noticing that the "Chicago accent" is disappearing.

However, there's a reason Condé Nast Traveler has named Chicago the "best big city in the U.S." Chicago is home to top universities, including Northwestern University, Wheaton College, and Valparaiso. And if you're looking for Chicago jobs, you can relocate to any one of the city's unique neighborhoods, such as North Center with its cozy Irish pubs and breweries or Uptown, the lively entertainment district. For those who want to live further out from the city, you can also find jobs in popular suburbs including Cicero, Oak Park, and Evanston.
