Jobs in Oakland, California, United States

Located on the east side of the San Francisco Bay in California, Oakland is one of the largest cities in the United States. The city is the central hub in the Bay Area and it is an amazing place to live or visit for a long-term stay.

Finest restaurants, burgeoning industries and a reasonable standard of living make Oakland, CA, one of the most livable cities in the United States. Slightly overshadowed by the nearby glorious Bay Area, Oakland is finally receiving some attention and well-deserved recognition from the world.

The business community of Oakland went through a difficult phase during the 1980s and 1990s. Along with causing extensive physical damage, The Loma Prieta Earthquake in 1989 compelled some business heads to think about relocating their businesses, entirely. However, from 1990s Oakland’s economy revived and in 2002, Oakland was ranked the 8th business city in the nation by Forbes.

The Role of Logistics in Oakland

Being a notable commercial center, Oakland flourishes in business and health care services, light manufacturing industries, government, transportation, food processing, arts, culture, and entertainment. One of the busiest ports in the US is the Port of Oakland and nearly 200,000 jobs are generated in this sector alone. So, if you are someone who knows logistics related stuff then Oakland is waiting for you with wide wings. Many big companies founded their headquarters in Oakland such as Clorox, Dreyers, and others. Downtown Oakland is the central business district of the city.

The Commercial Sector Boom

When talking about the commercial sector, wholesale and retail trade in Oakland is at their peak. Around 13% of the total workforce is employed in this sector. With hundreds of manufacturing units, this distinct sector employs another 9% of the city’s total workforce. Being a port city, shipbuilding and export-import play a vital role in shaping the economy. Some of the chief items to be exported are fruits and vegetables, resins, chemicals, waste paper, red meat and poultry and animal feed. And in terms of imports, auto parts, toys, games, computer equipment, wearing apparel and items made of plastic and processed fruits and vegetables dominates the list.

Besides, other industries like electrical equipment, chemicals, glass, automobiles and trucks, and pharmaceuticals should not be missed. All of them, though in small portions contribute to the total Oakland economy.
