|The 27th District of Texas is a great place to work and has a multitude of job opportunities. In fact, I often hear that companies are having a hard time filling openings. The business friendly climate in Texas coupled with low energy prices, a manufacturing renaissance, an oil boom in the Eagle Ford Shale region and a Tech boom in central Texas make for good paying jobs.
Constituents often contact my office inquiring about job opportunities. Below are some resources that should help anyone interested in finding employment around the Coastal Bend and with the federal government.
