California Employment Profile

The Golden State has one of the largest economies in the world. It is also incredibly diverse. Historically, the state has had a large population separated from the industrial heartland of the Eastern U.S.; therefore, it had to develop an economy that was largely self-sustaining. It has the largest agricultural sector in the country, as well as well-known technology and entertainment industries. (Source: California Department of Finance)

The largest industries in California are Hospitality and Tourism, Retail, Healthcare Services, Business Services, and Education and Training. Of these industries, Healthcare Services is seeing the fastest and most significant growth. (Source: California Employment Development Department)
