What's the easiest job to get in CC? I'm an IT professional and obviously can't go anywhere until I've got a job lined up. I've googled some stuff about median incomes but I remain a bit in the dark about what the job market is currently like in CC. I'm 34 and healthy and willing/able to change careers if need be.


Thanks for reading!

tough question. why cc? austin or houston are a lot easier to move and find a job. cc is nice, and the beaches are ok, but all in all it's pretty much the largest border city in texas that isn't on the border.

San Antonio isnt far and has a number of companies you might consider working for.
Rackspace comes to mind.

So if he wants to move to CC why are y'all trying to convince him otherwise? There is nothing wrong with CC.

It is a smaller city but has many job opportunities with a steadily growing job market, a strong housing market, is quickly a growing city, and is on the water.

Goodpunk, you should look at all of the oil and refinery jobs around CC. Valero, Citgo, Flint Hills, OxyChem, and all of the oilfield companies offer many job opportunities and may even have some IT positions open for the technical side of things.

The easiest job to get in CC right now is probably having a CDL and driving a truck. But even that is a little iffy right now because the price of oil dropped so much, although it's creeping back up.

With an IT background you might try looking at civilian jobs at the CC Naval Air Station. Also, maybe some of the federal law enforcement agencies, or state agencies such as the department of transportation, child support enforcement, or one of the school districts.

If you haven't been to Texas, you should definitely come down in the summer and take a look at CC, San Antonio and Austin at the very least. Although pretty close together, they are all quite different from one another.

Don't forget the CCNAS/CCAD. They have many job openings right now.

https://www.usajobs.gov/

Do a zip code search (like 78412), and select the 20 or 50 miles radius.

Good luck in your search!

Along with NAS-CC and CCAD I would also look at NAS-Kingsville. If you're used to commuting, the drive from Corpus (particularly the south side) to Kingsville isn't that bad.

I am also thinking of moving with my kids. My daughter was accepted to Texas A&M there. I have 2 others in school and coming from Dallas. Any suggestions for me? I am in the medical billing/collections field.

jennduke, Christus Spohn is the big medical monopoly here. I would look at their website to begin with (CHRISTUS Spohn | Serving Alice, Beeville, Corpus Christi and Kingsville, TX).

Also, for job seekers, this is a good site with helpful links: Workforce Solutions of the Coastal Bend

Hope that helps!
