Jobs in Lake Forest, California, United States

Location and Population. Lake Forest is a medium-sized city located in the Saddleback Valley in southern Orange County, with an estimated population of 83,240 in 2016. Its ethnic make-up is predominantly Non-Hispanic Whites (53%), although there are also sizable shares of Hispanics (25%) and Non-Hispanic Asians (15%). The share foreign-born is 25 percent. Median household income and cost of living are both high, and unemployment is low. The poverty rate has been low, but it increased significantly between 2008 and 2015.

Origins. This was an unincorporated area known as El Toro until December 1991, when it incorporated as the city of Lake Forest. El Toro Road from the I-5 Freeway to the foothills was the epicenter of the Saddleback Valley from the late 19th century to the end of the 20th century. However, the area gradually deteriorated, and most of the shops closed or moved to other cities. After Lake Forest incorporated, the city, together with the property owners of some ageing strip malls, developed the Arbor commercial district. This has upgraded the quality of both shopping and residential areas around El Toro Road. The city also contains two man-made lakes in the foothills, surrounded by condominiums, custom homes and sport facilities, each managed by an autonomous club – Lake Forest Beach and Tennis Club and Sun and Sail Club. In 2000, Lake Forest expanded its city limits to include the master-planned developments of Foothill Ranch and Portola Hills on the city’s northeastern boundary.

Economy.  Nearly half of the adult population has at least a bachelor’s degree and most residents of Lake Forest are employed in white collar jobs. Many people living in Lake Forest work in sales jobs, management occupations, and office and administrative support. Besides local retail and service businesses, Oakley Eyewear and Panasonic Avionics are both large employers within the city limits. Highly-skilled professions tend to use Lake Forest as a bedroom community and work elsewhere.

Character. Lake Forest is comprised of 15 distinct neighborhoods. The population is predominantly white, upper-middle class, conservative and nominally Christian. The city is still young and its cultural identity is defined by these well-to-do residents. Many live in the foothills and attend Rick Warren’s famous megachurch – Saddleback Church – which is located there. Having been an unincorporated area within Orange County for so long, city residents still rely on the county for many services and amenities.
