Los Angeles Vocational and Trade Schools

Los Angeles, California is the epitome of a true global economy. Los Angeles has long been a haven for those who want to enjoy sunny California; the city itself had a population of 3,857,799 people in 2012, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The Los Angeles metro area is markedly larger, with a population of 9,962,789 in 2013. Many of those residents work in the four major industries in the state, as reported by Forbes: Entertainment, Tourism, Aerospace and Technology.

The Los Angeles Mayor's Office of Economic and Workforce Development notes four key sectors of the growing economy:

  • Logistics and trade. As home to Los Angeles International Airport and the Los Angeles/Long Beach Port, the area handles about 40 percent of the nation's containerized goods.
  • Bio-tech and health sciences. With top-notch research and medical centers like Cedars-Sinai and UCLA Medical Center, this is where new biotech comes to grow.
  • Creative industries. Movie magic is a big deal in .LA., generating one million jobs and over 100 billion dollars each year.
  • Green technology. From solar panels to geothermal units to wind turbines and more, L.A. is heavily invested in green technology for a brighter future.

Many industries have found firm footing in Los Angeles, while new companies are growing at a fast clip. L.A. County boasts 14 Fortune 500 headquarters, including the following recognizable names:

  • The Walt Disney Company
  • Dole Food Company
  • DirecTV
  • Occidental Petroleum
  • AECOM Technologies
  • Health Net
  • Mattel
  • Reliance Steel & Aluminum
  • Edison International
  • Live Nation

Those interested in opportunities in the L.A. area might seek employment at any of these well-established companies or subsidiaries, but there are also options in new, growing fields. Los Angeles metro area has dozens of companies in the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing businesses of 2013. The top spot was taken by Fuhu, a technology leader.
