The City of Los Angeles is the seat of Los Angeles county, located in southern California. It has the second largest population after New York City, and is spread over a wide area between the mountains and the Pacific Ocean. The county, which is much bigger than the city, includes another 90 incorporated cities and towns as well as Santa Catalina and San Clemente. With around 4 million residents, the downtown area is the biggest government center after Washington, D.C.
As one of the most active economic regions in the United States, Los Angeles is at the leading edge of several growing sectors. The fashion industry boasts more than 87,000 jobs and is a primary force in the creative world. Manufacturing is also a large contributor to the economy, particularly in the aerospace industry. During the Cold War, the city became a major hub of the military-industrial complex. Construction is another enduring industry, partly because of a federal housing loan program for service veterans that boosted the building of new homes, shopping malls, and offices.
Working in L.A. has a number of attractive benefits, not least that you could bump into a Hollywood star at almost any point in your day. The following companies made it to the top 10 list, and they fall into a wide range of industries.
When these companies are recruiting, they make it a point to focus on hiring veterans, women, and people from other minority population groups.
With the large number of software, manufacturing and government jobs in Los Angeles, the security industry is an obvious place to start for veterans looking for jobs requiring fewer qualifications. Obviously, healthcare, education and hospitality are active industries because of the sheer size of the population, and all of these sectors also support lower-level work. Food service employees, cleaners, transport drivers and couriers are all examples of work that is frequently available without prior civilian experience, making then ideal starting points for returning military personnel.
