Calling Houston

  1. Hi guys,
    it's been awhile since I've written, this is off the beaten path but I'm not going into nursing. I had a major change of heart when I did just 2 hrs. of volunteer work in Tyler at a hospital. Hence, I will remain in retail until I find my next career.

    Could someone pleeeeeez write back re: what Houston is like. I've been only about 15 times , and despite the insane traffic , it does offer alot--things to do and cultural diversity.
    but what about the career market? i.d. the Energy industry laid off thousands.

    any feedback would be appreciated.

    This response is kind of late but I just joined this website recently. Houston's job market is slowly turning for the better. Last year it was awful. I was out of work for 6 months after being "downsized" from Worldcom. Enron was also a terrible thing for our city. However, I think the job market is looking better now. You should be able to find something in retail, since there are so many malls here. The traffic can be bad, depending on where you work/live. There are changes being made to decrease traffic though, there are toll roads being built and a light rail was built in the downtown area. You should visit again and start looking for jobs to see if the move is good for you. I wish you well.
