How are the firms doing in Texas?

I'm planning to move to Dallas this summer but I wonder how the architecture firms are doing in the middle of oil crisis.  All the oil companies are struggling now and it will have a huge impact on the Texas economy I think.

You'll have no problem getting a job. It's a buyers market for job seekers.

Did work down there a long time ago when oil was king, but more centered around Houston….Dallas is based on banking, telecommunications, technology, energy & healthcare….growing at over 80,000 people a year…largest grown in construction jobs in the country…gotta put those folks somewhere.

You should be able to find a job in Dallas without much difficulty.

I left Dallas 6 months ago and I just checked my old office and they still have not filled my position. There is a serious lack of talent that you can use to your advantage as well. Don't be afraid to negotiate hard when the time comes.
