It’s only the beginning for several graduates, taking a plunge into the deep end of the job pool. But there is hope, despite a workforce and economy that are in recovery in central #Texas.

“There were over 5,800 job opportunities posted in the Austin metro area in the last 30 days,” Career Awareness Project Coordinator with Workforce Solutions Jessica Garay said.

That’s up nearly 2,300 jobs since this time last year, according to Workforce Solutions. According to Garay, more than 2,000 of those positions do require a bachelor’s degree.

  • Registered Nurses (604)

  • Customer Service Representatives (208)
  • Baylor Scott and White, Walgreens, H-E-B
  • Retail Workers (224)
  • First-Line Supervisors of Retail Workers (223)
  • Maintenance and Repair Workers (135)
  • LVNs (116)
  • Human Resources Specialists(101)

Employers hiring in those areas include:

  • Deloitte
  • St. David’s HealthCare
  • UT
  • Ascension
  • Accenture
  • Texas Dept. of Public Safety
  • City of Austin
  • IBM

Occupations strictly asking for a four-year degree and less than two years’ experience ranged from RNs, sales, software developer, human resources specialists, market research analysts, marketing specialist and manager positions.

“Workforce Solution Capital Area has a ton of really great resources and career case managers that are always available to help job seekers in our area,” Garay said.
