What kind of jobs are there in Atlanta, GA?
Home to more than a dozen Fortune 500 companies – like Delta Air Lines Inc., The Home Depot and The Coca-Cola Company – Atlanta offers a range of job opportunities. Also, the metro area is expected to have one of the highest accelerated job growths among major urban areas over the next few years. The region's unemployment rate is slightly above the national average.
Technology is one of the fastest-growing employment sectors in Atlanta, and the entertainment industry is also booming thanks to production incentives such as a 20 percent transferable income tax credit. And with Turner Studios, Tyler Perry Studios and EUE/Screen Gems Studios all located here, and the new Pinewood Atlanta Studios just south of the city proper, Atlanta is attracting a record number of productions, and the skilled workforce needed to complete them.
