not much hiring going on in los angeles, but don't feel down, you can always put an app in with the local drug dealer and i hear fraud rings are ramping up their hiring as well. good luck

i would suggest you try some of the smaller police programs if you really want to be a police officer. LAPD might be hiring but the competition is really strict, many who apply have college degrees and the testing proceedure is really conplicated and time consuming.

Good luck whatever you end up doing. Remember the economy in Los Angeles is similar to many parts of the state, there are not a lot of companies hiring right now. Even websites that say, apply may not really have openings.
