Received some great, breaking news today. Houston is ranked number one in job growth over the past five years. This information was released today by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Houston created 129,800 private sector jobs between June 2005 and June 2010.
Coming on the heels of Forbes ranking Houston number one city in the country for Young Professionals, the statistics continue to show that Houston and Texas are the places to be if you want to have a good job and a good place to live. With organizations like the Houston Technology Center and the Greater Houston Partnership committing to supporting and growing Houston’s entrepreneurial business community, I think we’ll continue to see this trend of growth. Our city learned lessons and has come a long way from the low points of the 1980’s and I’m pleased to see we’re being recognized for the hard work of our business leaders!
