Job Outlook for Trade School Graduates in Los Angeles

The Bureau of Labor Statistics’ 10-year job forecast for California projects close to 40% growth or better in several of the most popular career fields among trade school students. Better yet for students in L.A., the city’s local trade school programs are rated among the nation’s best in each of these growing fields:

  • Dental Assistants (39.1% projected growth)
  • Data Communications and Network Systems Analysts (47.3% projected growth)
  • Skin Care Specialists (41% projected growth)
  • Theatrical and Performance Makeup Artists (46.7% projected growth)
  • Veterinary Technicians and Technologists (40.9% projected growth)

In more immediate good news for future vocational school graduates, the Bureau also released figures showing that the Los Angeles area is continuing to add jobs at twice the national average in three more popular trade school careers: leisure and hospitality, education and health services, and professional and business service.

So, while it is true that the Los Angeles job market is significantly tougher right now than other major cities in California, many of the industries that are hiring are ones where a degree or professional certification from a local trade technical college can be your key to get in.
