You don't say what type of job you are looking for...in any case, I would recommend that you secure a job BEFORE coming to Texas. The job situation here may not be as bad as some other places, but it is not great. Also what do you consider affordable when it comes to rent?

Well, the medical industry in Houston is still hiring so you need to look there or possibly Dallas/Ft Worth area. The $600/month rent will be tough in the big cities though. You might also check the mid-size cities like Tyler, Longview, or Amarillo. Good luck in your endeavor!

Healthcare is bigger in Dallas than in Houston, I think...although they are fairly close. I think you could find work in healthcare in all of the major cities. But the market here is tough, as another poster said...try to find work before you get here.

Cost of living is pretty much the same in all the cities. Houston and San Antonio are the cheapest, with Dallas and Austin being only SLIGHTLY more expensive. Nothing significant enough to look at though.

Did you miss the posts about the Houston Medical Center (not including all other medical facilities) being larger than downtown Dallas?

Thats totally irrelevant. Dallas's medical facilities are more spread out than Houstons. Houston is alot more pressed for space, so it makes since to have a few mega-medical centres as opposed to a bunch that are smaller and spread out.

My friends in the medical profession seem to think overall its 6 one way, half a dozen the other (meaning there are about the same). They both have specialties where one is better than the other. Houston has MD Anderson which is one the best Cancer Facilities in the World, Dallas has better Childrens medical facilities. Its all about what kind of medicine were talking about.

Really? First time I've ever heard that.

You'er correct in that Dallas doesn't have a concentrated medical center, but incorrect in saying that Houston doesn't have hospitals outside the TMC. I can assure you hospitals are spread out through the Houston metroplex as well.
