Orlando Leads the Nation in Job Growth Downtown Orlando, a hub for the city's thriving job market.

From its internationally acclaimed theme parks and leisure destinations to its beautiful weather and natural attractions, there’s plenty to love about Orlando. And, Orlando is not just a great city to visit; it also leads the country in job growth, making Orlando an excellent city to live, work and play.

According to a recent report from the U.S. Department of Labor, Orlando added 52,200 jobs in 2015 and is now the No. 1 metropolitan area in the country for job growth. That’s 8,700 more jobs than the year before, and the region’s highest annual gain since 2004!

Out of 30 regions in the country with an employment base of at least 1 million jobs, Orlando’s employment grew 4.59 percent in 2015, beating out both San Jose and San Francisco, California for the top spot. With close to 150 jobs added per day and all major industries participating, this an exciting time for not only those looking for jobs, but also for companies that are looking to expand or get off the ground.

Because of this accelerated job and business growth, Orlando and surrounding areas can expect the population and local economy to continue to prosper, as well.
