Los Angeles Social Work Jobs Overview

Social work jobs are vital for the health, safety, and well-being of people all across the United States. Social workers are often the first person someone talks to when they're in need. They're also among the first responders in a crisis that involves emotional or mental challenges, neglect, or abuse, and they partner with government agencies to address these emergency situations.

As a social worker, you really are a jack of all trades. There are social work positions in schools, hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, detention centers, and community development organizations. You'll protect at-risk children, work with people in vulnerable communities, and help families navigate the foster care system or access services such as SNAP and affordable housing. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that the need for these services will not decrease any time soon. In fact, they project a 13% increase in social worker jobs over the next 10 years.

About Working in Los Angeles, California

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.
