Workers needed for thousands of area jobs

This is really good information, the Texas Workforce Commission has issued a newly updated list of 42 jobs in Central Texas that are in demand or emerging in the local economy,

Quote:
The state creates the list to determine where to direct its federal training dollars, which can be up to $7,000 for a qualified individual who enrolls in Austin Community College or other approved training programs. It is a varied list of jobs that require from one year of training after high school to a college degree. It includes both high- and low-tech. The average wages range from $15 to $50 an hour. There are more than 8,000 openings now on the list in the 10 counties surrounding Austin, and that number is projected to increase to almost 66,000 over the next decade.

"We are moving people into jobs that we know will be there and will offer a sustainable wage," said Alan Miller, executive director of Workforce Solutions Capital Area. "These are jobs that will support our growth industries."

I found some really good data about jobs and salaries in the Austin area here: Austin-Round Rock, TX - May 2010 OES Metropolitan and Nonmetropolitan Area Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates

I had always heard that Austin had too many Architects here as compared to other places, even Houston and Dallas. That website verified and quantified the situation. You can't swing a dead cat without hitting an Architect in Austin.

The location quotient is the ratio of the area concentration of occupational employment to the national average concentration. A location quotient greater than one indicates the occupation has a higher share of employment than average, and a location quotient less than one indicates the occupation is less prevalent in the area than average.

Houston had 1,940 Architects, with a Location quotient of 1.1 and a Mean annual wage of $91,830
Occupational Employment and Wages in Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown, TX

Dallas had 2,140 Architects, with a Location quotient of 1.068 and a Mean annual wage of $81,390
Dallas-Plano-Irving, TX Metropolitan Division - May 2010 OES Metropolitan and Nonmetropolitan Area Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates

Austin has 850 Architects, with a location quotent of 1.627 and a mean annual wage of $73,380.
