Working and living in Los Angeles

Employers talk about the opportunities and perks of working and residing in Los Angeles and how the cost of living can impact your job search.

When people think of Los Angeles they obviously think of sun, sand, Hollywood and more. But there are more opportunities for careers in the LA area than just that of actor or model. 

With such a diverse cultural footprint, LA has a multitude of industries that can satisfy a number of individuals looking to find a new opportunity on the west coast. Cost of living can range but tends to be on the more expensive side compared to the national average but varies greatly between counties as well.

The commute is always the biggest challenge in LA because of how spread out the city is. Obviously, you should visit the area before deciding to move - to look at your local schools, property and employers.
