The Texas Workforce Commission Relaunches its Job Site
The Texas Workforce Commission has relaunched its upgraded job site, WorkInTexas.com with new features to improve talent and job matching.   With business booming and unemployment in Texas at an all-time low, the new platform will streamline the hiring process in a tight labor market. 

Employers can post jobs on WorkInTexas.com for free, set up a virtual recruiter and access the local talent pool in their area.   Job seekers have the option to interact with knowledgeable staff at the Workforce Solutions offices around the state, including access to computer labs, job search related classes, hiring events and referrals to employers.

The survey looks at a wide range of issues, grouped broadly into five categories:
