The city of Dallas is known for its affordable cost of living and down-home friendly people. Although you may think of cattle and oil when the words Dallas/Ft. Worth are mentioned, nowadays things are quite different. According to Dallas Business Journal, Southern Methodist University recently released its Dallas 100 list. Dallas is now breeding independent companies that are growing in leaps and bounds. This opens the opportunities for technology experts to prosper.

There is no denying that technology has had a huge impact on our country. While almost no one carried a cell phone in the 1980s, children as young as 12 years old are now walking around with iPhones. Instead of watching our children play outside, they are more likely to be found sitting in front of a computer screen or television set, only exercising their fingers while playing some very explosive game.

According to the Dallas Convention and Visitors Bureau, Dallas is the ninth largest city in the country. The continued growth in population leads to a high demand for housing, industry and technological support. According to Texas Instruments, one of the leading providers of digital information systems, the Dallas/Ft. Worth area has seen a huge growth in the technological industry.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics says that there is a direct correlation between population growth and job openings. As the population spirals, the need for commodities and jobs increases. Since technology is always necessary these days, jobs are readily available. Almost everyone in every home has a computer, laptop or tablet, if not all three. So, if the economy seems bleak, don’t lose hope. A simple search for technology positions in Dallas through the search engine will uncover over 1,000 results. Don’t fight the ever-changing means of communication today and move with the flow. Dallas is at the top of its game.
