They’re coming for brains, and they’ll eat your company from the inside out to get them.
America’s biggest brands have invaded Austin, and they’re closing in on your company’s brightest minds. Whether or not you know it, you’re in a struggle for talent against the likes of Apple (which is recruiting up to 6,000 Austinites) and Google (which could create a whopping 14,000 jobs in Round Rock).
The growth of Austin’s job market is nothing short of incredible (in fact, the city is in the top two for job growth according to Forbes). According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ CES program, the city added 6,300 jobs in May alone.
- Occupancy: 92.6%
- Units added: 7,061
- Annual units absorbed: 3,614
The growth isn’t limited to Austin. Across Texas, employers expanded their payrolls by 64,100 jobs in April for a total of 348,000 seasonally adjusted non-farm jobs. Austin’s unemployment rate fell to 3.8% in June, down from 5.5% in March and 6.4% a year ago. Seven of Texas’ 11 major industries experienced positive growth.
