Houston Has One Helluva Job Market. In Other News, We Quit.

Dear Houstoned Reader,

Are you having murderous feelings toward your boss, your co-worker, or your client? Going postal is certainly an option. But may we suggest simply quitting? After all, you are living in Houston, one of the top ten job markets in the USA, according to a recent study. And not only does Houston come in at No. 5, Dallas-Fort Worth comes in at No. 6 and Austin at No. 8.

Says the Houston Business Journal, “Texas, with three metros in the top 10, boasts more hot markets than any other state. Different sectors are given credit for the employment upswings in each area -- energy in Houston, finance in Dallas-Fort Worth and technology in Austin.” In sum, there’s no need to crap in anyone’s trashcan. It’s not like you live in Detroit.
