My classmates who were from Houston and set on going back there had a little tougher time, so Houston is a little more stiff. But I think by now ( 6 mo after grad) they still all found jobs. But the Dallas/Fort Worth area is pretty good, many of the hospitals have no problem with hiring new grads. Some I would recommend are Baylor Health System (a system of 6 hospitals), Presbytarian, Methodist, Parkland, Children's Medical Center, UT Southwestern (they are big on GPA), Medical City, Cook Children's in Ft. Worth, and then there are also good hospitals in the north subburbs like Plano and McKinney. A couple of my classmates went to work at Scott & White in Temple (a great teaching hospital half way between Austin and Dallas). And then some still went to Waco and are working at Providence Hospital or Hillcrest. I know a few got jobs in Austin but I think its a little more competitive than Dallas. Dell Children's is a good one in Austin. Hope this helps. I lived in TX for 5 years before moving to Illinois (should have stayed the job market is far better there), so if you have any more questions feel free to ask.
