This spring, Los Angeles Center of Excellence (COE) Director Luke Meyer and Assistant Director Juan Madrigal presented findings examining the region’s in-demand and high-paying occupations to faculty, administrators, and community leaders from El Camino College, West Los Angeles College, and Bonita Unified School District.
During these presentations, the LA COE highlighted that 26% of all jobs in the state are in Los Angeles County. Of all jobs requiring high school diploma or equivalent, home health and personal care aides and office clerks, generalaccounted for the most annual job openings, as well as the highest proportion of jobs in 2020 in the county.
Considering other community-college-relevant occupations (middle-skill occupations), several other occupations also accounted for a large portion of annual job openings, as well as a significant proportion of jobs in 2020 in the county:
- Registered nurses
- Bookkeeping, accounting, and auditing clerks
- Heavy tractor-trailer truck drivers
- Teaching assistants
- Nursing assistants
The presentation also highlighted sector-specific data for health, ICT-digital media, and energy, construction, and utilities.
