I am wanting to relocate to Ft. Worth, but of course, employment is required first. Anyone know of any good employment agencies other than the TWC?

you make no mention of what type of work you would qualify for---makes a difference, don't you think...
have you even done a Monster.com search to see what is out there...

Professional organizations---doing newspaper search on line--
TWC is free--don't think any business employment agencies work for free...
so you are looking at doing your own job search if you don't want to pay commission---
there are some public agancies that work with seniors or helping women from abusive relationships gain self-esteem and perhaps employment...

Companies in the area that need workers like the hospital systems have web sites where they post vacancies and you can apply directly
as do other large employers--don't know how long it takes to process applications or hiring practices because they are all different...

there have been quite a few open job fairs in cities like Arlington and FTW...papers gives dates and times--they are usually free and you just need to bring your resumes...but they can be extremely crowded and rather frustrating since so many people are queing at same time...often it just means dropping your letter off at a table where there is pile of others and no real personal interaction with people at table...
many times those people are not people who actually do the hiring but clerks who manage the paperwork...
Go to Google Directory and look at employment---there is link there that allows you to seach various news papers....
Craig's List in Dallas has job posting for Tarrant county since there is no Craig's for FTW at this time...

The colleges and universities and the cities in this area often do not post their employment vacancies in newspapers or with Monster or Career Builder--just their own web site....so I would suggest that (depending on what type of work you want) you might check those web sites...they need not just teachers but also clerical, maintenance, security people...some have good benefits like free tuition and maybe better health plans than some regular companies....
