Orange County Design Employment

I am looking for some feedback on the design employment of Orange County. I am a new designer who has just moved to the area.

-I am having trouble finding Packaging Firms and Design Studios that focus on packaging and/or branding.

-There seems to be quite a few corporations headquartered here, does anyone know which have in-house design groups?

-I am also curious as to whether anyone else is having trouble finding work in this area.

Thanks to anybody who can help me with some input.
