North Texas Ranks No. 3 in U.S. Job Opportunities

The US Bureau of Labor and Statistics has named North Texas as the No. 3 U.S. metropolitan area in terms of job growth for the second month in a row, as of June 2015.

With substantial population and business growth in the North Texas area, it’s no wonder that employment rates would also rise. According to the report, DFW added more than 117,800 seasonally unadjusted jobs in the last year (ending in June), and nearly one-third of those jobs were in the Dallas-Plano-Irving area.

Companies are building offices or relocating to North Texas every day, including the new Facebook data center at Hillwood’s Alliance development, The Star in Frisco, a 91-acre mixed-use development that will house the headquarters of No. 1 NFL franchise The Dallas Cowboys, and auto manufacturer Toyota. Over $8 Billion in construction bids are out in DFW, and that means more jobs for more North Texans.

In addition to new business, North Texas has an ever changing and growing retail climate as the 10th largest retail market in the U.S., with 18 malls or shopping centers with over 1 million square feet of space with many venues to staff. With more than 833 sports venues, the world’s 4th busiest airport and 3,000 high-tech firms in the Metroplex, employment opportunities are as diverse as our region.
