As if technology weren’t enough of a burden on our lives, many Americans now face the even greater burden of not having to do all of the things they once did. This, we learned, was one of the reasons why there was a wage gap.
The good news is that while we still don’t all have the same amount of tech skills in our resumes and résumés, we are slowly beginning to see a change in the industry that has helped create the tech jobs that Americans are now struggling to find. We’ve also begun to see the creation of new tech jobs in Texas. According to a recent article in The Washington Post, tech job growth in the state seems to be going in the right direction.
I know everyone is talking about the jobs in the “tech sector” in “Texas,” but I’m looking at the tech jobs themselves in the state. According to a recent report from Job Bank, there are more than 3,000 tech jobs in Texas.
There are more than 3,000 tech jobs in Texas according to a report by the state’s Job Bank.
I could just stop there, but let’s talk about the job itself, shall we? “Tech” is a broad category that includes: Computer Programming; Information Technology; Software Development; and Web Development. A lot of the jobs are technical in nature, but let’s just say that there’s a lot more than just the tech jobs.
The first time I heard someone say that there were more than 3,000 tech jobs in Texas was when I was in college. I guess that’s probably why I never thought to ask anyone who was unemployed. Back then, it seemed like there wasn’t a whole lot of unemployed people in Texas.
I’ve noticed that if you’re unemployed, the only people who care are the ones who have nothing. I am not saying that everyone has nothing. I’m just saying that I’m not sure why I should be surprised by that.
You would think that by being unemployed, you would have a better chance of getting a job in a tech-focused tech-centric city. But I don’t know that. In fact, I’m pretty sure these jobs are a lot easier to get a job in. I mean, it would be hard to get a full-time employment position in Silicon Valley with a few tech jobs.
Now I know there are many reasons why I’m worried, but I can tell you this – it’s not just because I’m unemployed. I’m also worried because this is what happens when you don’t know about the tech industry. I mean, if I had a job in tech, I could see the world being a pretty amazing place.
Of course, the tech industry is not all about creating amazing things, and it’s certainly not all about the people who are making all those amazing things. There’s a lot more to it than that. But for now let’s just say that if you’re interested in a tech career, you have to be willing to be a little skeptical of what you see. You have to be willing to be a little skeptical of the company’s mission.
