Finding Dallas Jobs

Good news for those looking for Dallas jobs; several companies are looking into relocating or opening an office in the area. Officials hope that this will keep the city in the black even if the national economy continues it’s descent into recession.

The city’s central location, growing workforce, low business costs in the area and the major airport make it top on employers’ list for relocations and new distribution centers. Last year, a good number of Dallas jobs were created when Comerica Inc. and Research in Motion Ltd were attracted to the area for these reasons.

According to one of the real estate broker Staubach Co.’s executive vice presidents, “Dallas is absolutely in the sweet spot as far as being in a position to attract the employers that have jobs and people looking for good high-paying jobs.” He went on to say that “Texas is the highest growth state in the country. Every wants to be here.”

Dallas is currently the fastest growing U.S. metro area and it’s population of 6 million makes it the fourth largest. At this time there are several businesses considering bringing operations to the area, which would mean a good number of new jobs in Dallas.

Deloitte is considering buying land and building a $300 million training center. If plans go through, 500 Dallas jobs would be created. Dick’s Sporting Goods is also thinking about creating a distribution center in the area. The plan calls for the building to be at least 600,000 square feet.

Savannah College of Art & Design, located in Georgia, is seeking more than 300,00 square feet for another campus. Both Dallas and San Diego are under consideration. There is no estimate at this time how many jobs would be created if this plan comes into being.
