About Washington, D.C.
Washington, D.C., is a city known by many different names. While its official title is the District of Columbia, it's generally referred to as D.C. or Washington. Washington, D.C., is the home of all three branches of the United States government, nearly 200 foreign embassies, and the headquarters of many companies and non-profit organizations.
The History of Washington, D.C.
While Washington, D.C., is best known as the capital of the United States, it's also home to a growing population. The city was officially founded as the nation's capital on July 16, 1790. In the early days of the city, Pierre Charles L'Enfant created a design of long boulevards and open ceremonial spaces that reminded him of his home country of France. African-American and self-taught mathematician Benjamin Banneker then put together the calculations for laying out the city.
Although most of the city burned to the ground during the War of 1812, it was quickly rebuilt and even expanded beyond what L'Enfant had originally planned. Today it's a cosmopolitan city with an incredibly diverse ethnic population. Foreign delegations from around the world continually bring new residents, restaurants and entertainment to the city.
The D.C. economy is extremely diverse and robust, counted among the largest metropolitan economies in the country. A large percentage of jobs in the district are related to the federal government, which has created a well-insulated job market that typically remains very stable.

Law firms, trade unions, lobbying firms, professional associations and industry trade groups are among the major employers in the area.
However, government and business jobs are not your only options in D.C. Tourism is the city's second-largest industry, so there are plenty of roles to fill within the hospitality and leisure sectors. In addition to tourism, you can also consider jobs in the growing industries of education, finance and scientific research.
