Jobs became more available in January within the state of Texas.Texas continues to be one of the best states in the U.S. to live for people who work for a living based on the latest unemployment statistics.According to the Texas Workforce Commission, employers increased the size of their payrolls in the first month of January, adding 10,400 nonfarm jobs in January, putting the Lone Star State's unemployment rate at 6.3 percent. By comparison, the U.S. unemployment rate during the same period was 7.9 percent.Andres Alcantar, chairman of the TWC, noted that eight of the state's 11 major employment industries saw more net jobs in January, proving to be a great time for job seekers to send in their resumes.”I encourage job seekers and employers to visit WorkInTexas.com, or a local Workforce Solutions office, to take advantage of the quality services available to them,” said Alcantar.Once applicants land a position, they may want to consider the vast selection of Houston homes for a place to live at, a city that was declared America's “Coolest City” by Forbes Magazine last summer.
