Austin, Texas: Job Creation Engine
Austin, Texas, is proving to be one of the hottest job creation engines in the United States, reports It-Jobs.Fins.com. And there's no sign Austin's job market is slowing down.
From September 2009 through September 2010, the Austin area generated 17,300 jobs. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, that region now has 771,000 workers. In comparison, Silicon Valley in San Jose, Calif., only created 6,700 new jobs during that period.
You can keep your eyes on Austin for job openings through sites such as Careerbuilder.com. Actually you can extend that search to much of Texas. Six cities in Texas were listed by the Brookings Institute as among the 21 recession-proof areas, says CNN Money.
One employer in Austin that will be hiring non-technical staff is StoredIQ. The company sells data storage products. Over the next year, StoredIQ will be in the market for not only software engineers but also sales representatives and support people. Right now, the website just lists technical positions. However, keep monitoring the career section for opportunities at StoredIQ.
