Looking at a major city; have a wife, no kids. I going to fly out and a spend a week at various locations in the Spring. Have been to San Antonio and Dallas so far and really liked them. I like the beach, but jobs are more important. Thinking to check out CC, Austin, Houston and Galveston... Any insights?

Just go wherever you can get a job.

I don't think Galveston has fully recovered from the last hurricane.

San Antonio is probably the hedalthiest economy at this time, but go whereever the job takes you.

Houston has the best economy in Texas right now.

Houston will probably put you as close to the beach as any large city in Texas. Not knowing your degree it also is the most diverse as far as jobs. Houston is a international city in business;San Antonio is a military city.

Honestly, there have been so many people relocating here the past year or so the job market is already flooded & some people are even being laid off. Its hard enough for even a native Texan with experience to get a good job. A four year degree in Business Management is...how can I put this without upsetting anyone...almost worthless without several years of on the job training. Employers now days are looking for skilled workers in a specific field, it doesn't really matter where you went to college anymore as long as you have the training to perform the job at hand & get it done right the first time.

I don't know how Austin is going to absorb all of these newcomers. Even in good times it was hard to get a good job in Austin. (I went to UT in the 1980s.) I would go to Dallas-Ftr. Worth just because it's bigger and you might have a better chance on landing a job.
