houstonHOUSTON, TX – Houston may be the 4th largest city in the country, but it’s number 1 in jobs.

Not only are we the first city to regain all the jobs we lost in the recession, but we’ve managed to add a second position for every one of those lost jobs.

Energy related positions played a large part in job growth.

Another factor; location, location, location. Because we are so close to Latin America more than 100 foreign companies had made their way to the bayou city, expanded their businesses or started new companies between 2008 and 2010.

So if you’re out there and need a job Houston has them, you just need to be willing to take them.
