Texas, home to a vibrant, creative and technologically advanced economy, is a national leader in high-tech jobs.
But the state’s workforce is shrinking, as well.
In 2017, there were just 11,000 full-time equivalent jobs in Texas, compared to the current number of 12 million.
The state has long struggled with a labor shortage, with unemployment in 2016 topping 8%.
Now, the state is experiencing a wave of retirements and layoffs.
This has left Texas struggling to recruit new employees for its high-skill industries, including the technology sector, manufacturing, and financial services.
These job opportunities, which are largely tied to tech jobs, are particularly hard to find.
For example, in the U.S., Google has hired about 4.2 million full-timers in the last five years, while Apple has hired more than 1.6 million in that time.
But there are other ways to make a job in Texas more appealing.
Here are a few tips to help you create an appealing job profile for yourself, your friends and co-workers, and your business.
How to Start Writing a Memos with a pen and paper: First, figure out what your company is trying to do.
Do you want to make it easier for people to apply for jobs?
Offer more incentives to those who apply, or help you attract the best talent from the pool?
Or do you want your workers to feel like they have the ability to succeed at your company?
Are there any other benefits to the company you are recruiting for?
You can also try to identify what kind of company your target audience is.
Are you a big company?
A smaller company?
Or are you looking for a more flexible business model that might appeal to a broader audience?
The more information you have about your target market, the more accurate your hiring process will be.
You’ll also want to figure out how you want the job to look.
What do you like about the company?
What are your strengths and weaknesses?
How would you improve on your current processes?
What’s your vision?
How will your company build a future for its workforce?
If you want a job at a smaller company, try to make sure you can recruit a new manager.
If you’re looking for an engineer, ask if you can talk to them about working with the engineers who are already at your job.
And if you’re a CEO looking for people who can lead a small company, consider talking to your co-founder about how you can improve the process of running a small business.
If your job is a marketing job, start by talking to a few people in the company about how to market your company.
If the company is in manufacturing, consider working with a recruiter to determine if they can help you find people who might be good candidates for manufacturing jobs.
You can always reach out to a recruitor if you have questions about a particular position.
How do you choose which candidates to interview?
You need to figure this out early on.
Is your company’s position on the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) agenda an important part of the job description?
Do you need people with a particular skill set?
Do your employees have experience in those skills?
Is your business oriented around a specific technology or service?
Do they have a particular way of doing business?
Does your company have a history of recruiting from other states?
If not, what is your company doing right now?
How long are your current employees likely to be?
If they have already been laid off, do you have a list of candidates for them to interview, or do you need to fill them?
Do the people you’re interviewing need a particular degree or skill set or have other specific skills?
If so, can you talk with them about that?
What is the average pay for your positions?
Do current and future employees have specific skills or experience that they would be valuable in?
If the answer is no, how can you work to find a solution?
How do your prospects think about the job?
Does the job offer a strong competitive advantage?
Do past experience, and/or previous job performance, mean that you can get the job for less money?
Do prospective hires expect to be paid based on experience?
Are you prepared to offer the job and pay?
Are they ready to work for less?
If no, what are the skills and experience you need that they don’t have?
Are your employees ready to be part of a team and a team-oriented organization?
If yes, can they handle that and move through the hiring process?
How much money does the job cost?
What types of benefits do you offer, and are they flexible enough to meet the needs of your current and prospective employees?
If your company offers health care or a retirement package, what types of benefit packages would you offer?
If that’s not enough, consider whether you can offer more benefits in exchange for lower
