Jobs in San Francisco, California, United States

San Francisco is located in the north of California where, owing to its size and importance as a city it is very much the cultural and economic hub for the part of the state.

Founded in 1776 by Spanish colonists, they bestowed the name of San Francisco on the fledging town in honor of St Francis, one of the most venerated figures in the Catholic Church.

The city first came to prominence during the California Gold Rush of 1849. During this period, the city grew rapidly to become the largest city on the western coast – before the famous earthquake of 1906 destroyed 75% of the city.

Today the city is recognized world wide as a centre of liberal activism, with a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

San Fran Economy & Jobs Market

San Francisco has a relatively diverse economy, centered mainly on the service industries. The city has long been a financial center, stretching all the way back to the Gold Rush days in the 19th century. The city contains world or regional headquarters for over 30 major financial institutions including 6 Fortune 500 companies. This had led to San Francisco being named the sixth most competitive financial center in the world in the 2017 Global Financial centers Index.

Tourism and related services is also a huge industry in San Francisco, providing around 1 in 7 jobs in the city.

High Technology has, since the mid 1990’s, become a booming job market in San Francisco. Whilst technology jobs accounted for around 1% of total employment in the city in 1990, this figure is now closer to 8%. In 2013, venture capital investments in tech companies in San Francisco totaled over $4.58 billion, a higher percentage than was awarded in nearby Silicon Valley.

Living in San Francisco

Unlike many cities in the United States, San Francisco is designed to be a walkers city. The general layout of the city comprises mixed use neighborhoods centered around commercial corridors.

This has encouraged a friendlier, local neighborhood business centered atmosphere to flourish, whereby people live close to a range of restaurants, bars and shops which they use frequently.

You will find the overall atmosphere of San Francisco to be more generally liberal than you will find in many other US cities. The city is in particular extremely friendly to the LGBT community. There is also a strong Hippie Counterculture vibe present in the city, which again gives it a pretty unique air.

Living standards across the city are high, and many former blue collar neighborhoods have been gentrified, leading to rapidly rising rental and home buying costs throughout the city.

So, San Francisco is undoubtedly one of the nicest cities to live in within the United States – but that high quality of living will inevitably not come cheaply.
