Texas Cities Ranked Among Best Places to Find a Job

February 20, 2018 • Zach DiSchiano

A recent report from WalletHub, a personal finance website, found that Texas is the place to look for those seeking employment.

Analysts from the organization compared 150 of the most populated cities across 23 key metrics of job market strength, including job opportunities, employment growth, and median annual income, to find the best and worst places to work in the country.

Surprisingly, 14 of the 16 Texas cities in the report moved down in the rankings, many by double digits. Austin and Irving were the only two cities that moved up.

Here’s where Texas cities ranked on the list (the number in parentheses is what the city was ranked last year):

  • No. 6 Plano (4)
  • No. 11 Austin (22)
  • No. 23 Irving (37)
  • No. 38 Grand Prairie (26)
  • No. 39 Amarillo (34)
  • No. 48 Garland (17)
  • No. 49 Dallas (21)
  • No. 59 San Antonio (58)
  • No. 79 Lubbock (50)
  • No. 83 Arlington (69)
  • No. 87 Fort Worth (77)
  • No. 107 El Paso (90)
  • No. 120 Houston (88)
  • No. 139 Corpus Christi (85)
  • No. 146 Laredo (87)
  • No. 171 Brownsville (128)
