Austin, TX Employment Information

Austin Employment Overview

Austin is the capital of Texas, the 11th most populated city in the U.S. and one of the fastest-growing cities in the country. High-tech industries are prevalent in Austin, particularly in the software and semiconductor segments. The city also boasts well-developed infrastructures for electric, telecommunication, transportation, and water careers. Other job sectors that are thriving in Austin include wireless technology, digital media and tourism. The area actively attracts national and regional headquarters, and there are a number of young but burgeoning job sectors in the area including automotive, medical products and logistics.

Austin Job Market

The most successful and still-fastest-growing sectors within the Austin economy are semiconductor manufacturing and innovation and software and wireless industries. Drawing on this expertise and resources, the city is successfully venturing into the biomedical and pharmaceutical industries, and this has given rise to a higher rate of new jobs, including biotech jobs, than in industries where those segments are already established. Additionally, the high rate of corporate headquarters in the city generally leads to a job market that is more diverse than the sector focuses would indicate.

Austin Employment Trends

Austin has 74 percent of its working-age population in the labor force, which is about 9 percent above both the Texas and U.S. average. The unemployment rate is about 6 percent and trending down, which is below the national and Texas averages and was the case prior to and during the recession. Total employment was at its lowest in many years between 2002 and 2003, but it began to rise again in 2004 and has continued an upward trend since.

Austin Cost of Living

Workers in Austin are generally better compensated than the average Texas and U.S. worker. Household incomes are slightly less than the rest of the region, but that is offset by a slightly lower cost of living. The average one-way commute in Austin is 25 minutes, which is below the national average. Nearly 14 percent of the workforce carpools, and 4.5 percent uses some form of public transportation.
