Los Angeles Jobs: Overview

The Hollywood sign stands for everything glamourous and star-studded in Los Angeles. But did you know it was built in the 1920s to advertise a new neighborhood called Hollywoodland? The "land" was eventually dropped from the sign in 1949, and it became associated with nearby Paramount Pictures, Universal, and Warner Brothers. Today, downtown L.A. is the largest government hub outside of Washington D.C. and has the largest historical theater district in the U.S. But not all Los Angeles jobs are in show business. More than 700,000 health services and biomedical jobs and 190,000 aerospace jobs stoke L.A.'s economy.

If L.A. were a country, the city's economy would be bigger than those of Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, and Sweden. Los Angeles is a sprawling metropolis, engulfing five counties—Los Angeles, Riverside, Ventura, Orange, and San Bernardino. If you're looking for jobs in Los Angeles, you have a lot of choices for relocation. There are more than 80 neighborhoods in L.A. and 16 districts just in downtown. For those who want a slightly less hectic pace, you can also find jobs in L.A.'s beautiful suburbs, including Pasadena, West Covina, and Anaheim.

Popular Jobs in Los Angeles

Hollywood supplies some of the most glamorous jobs to Los Angeles, including those in entertainment, the arts, and media jobs that support the show business industry. But of course, not all jobs will put you on stage and screen. To serve its thriving community, L.A. has some of the top hospitals in the U.S., including City of Hope Cancer Center, UCLA Medical Center, and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, with fantastic opportunities for healthcare support jobs. To manage all the big movie-star salaries, money management of big businesses, and the finances of "regular people," opportunities for finance jobs are also abundant.
