It’s widely known that California has one of the healthiest and most powerful economies in the nation, and like all strong economies, that is in part due to the diversity and strength of its financial sector. This leads to finance recruitment agencies needing to fill positions in a wide variety of firms of different sizes and orientations. The state’s progressive values base and its investment in new technologies helps to ensure this diverse economy keeps growing through diversification too—but the question is, does that lead to more options for finance headhunters in Los Angeles?
A Look at the Data
According to the most recent data on demand in the finance sector, California continues to offer the most opportunity in the nation with over 450,000 jobs in the industry. While the city of Los Angeles itself only ranks fifth nationally, one has to consider the large congregation of cities that support L.A. proper, because that concentration of demand makes the numbers for Los Angeles appear lower than the number of jobs in the area. Here are some more important facts about your options:
- Finance recruiters are the fifth most in-demand financial industry job in the city.
- Recruitment agencies work with employers looking to develop their own in-house recruiting, providing you with opportunities in a variety of settings.
- Recruitment agencies also headhunt for their own talent, providing experienced applicants with even more options.
While there aren’t hard numbers to support the difference in options between Los Angeles and other major cities with booming financial sectors, the city’s placement among other thriving metropolitan areas and the state’s status as the state with the largest demand for financial services both point to there being more options available for finance professionals of all stripes in the area.
