Job Market Growth In Central Texas

As a Certified Resume Writer and Job Search Coach – not only do I keep an eye on where the jobs and emerging industries are nationally, but I also pay close attention to what is happening on a local level here in the Hill Country of Texas (Boerne, Kerrville, Fredericksburg, San Antonio, Austin etc..).

For most of 2008 and over half of 2009, Texas led the pack in terms of US job growth and hiring trends. Just recently activity has begun to slow, however the following industries still report positive hiring trends: Healthcare and Government lead the way with 59% and 40% job growth for June 2009.*

Further down the line the following industries are showing very mild growth between 1% and 2%. These industries include: Utilities, Accommodations and Food Services.

Nearly every company in every industry experiences some attrition each year – whether hiring or not, but to maximize your market leverage its best to align yourself with growing industries, if possible.
