Jobs in Houston right now!


Giving up will NOT get you a job
I read an article in a local paper this week that explained the National Unemployment number remained at 10%, but more importantly, job searchers are giving up hope. They have just stopped trying because jobs are not available.
THAT IS POOP! Don’t you EVER give up!! And, there ARE jobs available. They might not be a perfect fit for your background, your education, or your dreams…but they are jobs. You have to apply, network, and go GET them., advanced search with the cities being Houston, The Woodlands, and Spring and any FULL-TIME job within 50 miles. The following results came up:

    I think the biggest hassle now is training for those jobs. There are too many people thinking that they will find something in the same field they just got laid off in, instead of training for a new career. Houston schools should be packed to the brim: colleges, universities, vocational, etc.
    People should DO something with their "down time" in between searching!

    When you see the breakdown of these numbers, it makes me think people aren't trying hard enough. The same is probably true for most cities in the U.S.: the jobs really ARE there...people have just stopped looking.

    I am new here, in Houston, but I realize many things since I move from Europe on 2008, and I can tell,- I gave up! It is impossible to get a job here. And those numbers of jobs available- who knows what is behind them? Recruiters do not answer on emails... there is NEVER any response from employers. It is a stress to call to recruiters, because in reality my calls irritates calls are not welcome...

    James, this is false hope. There is a percent of these that are "scams" from recruiting companies that want your entry fee, but can't actually find you a job. There is also a larger percent that require more education than most applicants do not have, i.e. Nursing, Teaching, Engineering, etc.

    I agree with Inga. Until we get the current administration out of office, we are going to be faced with very high unemployment rates, declining business, higher taxes and a soon-to-be Healthcare program that will cause revolution.

    There are still a lot of jobs in San Antonio too...

    I enjoyed and agreed with your article. I'm attempting a career change at age 55, and the field I'm interested in (CAD Drafter), it's hard to find entry level work. So, I'm looking for work in my previous career (sales) until job market improves. There are sales jobs out there, just have to be persistent. I may have to take a job I'm not thrilled about just to have a paycheck. It's all about holding on until things get better, and you HAVE TO BELIEVE that things WILL get better!
