LA will be getting more jobs thanks to Boeing. The multinational transport corporation is currently working toward an increase in job creation in the area through its Defense, Space & Security businesses in both LA and Alabama. It is anticipated that consumer products companies will bolster their advertising efforts for these jobs.
According to a report released at the end of last month, an additional 475,000 have been added to Los Angeles County since the depths of the Great Recession with a further 334,200 expected by 2020. While they will not be the most high-paying positions, the good news is that very little education will be required for these positions. In fact, not even a high school diploma (or, perhaps more important, any work experience) will be required. This accounts for more than a third of the jobs.
Then, another third of the jobs will be good for those with a high school diploma (or equivalent) and the remaining third will be good for graduates who have a BA (10.5 percent), Associate degree (4.5 percent) and high school plus education (5.6 percent).
Emerging industries in the region seem to be biosciences along with advanced transportation and fuels.
