Houston, we don’t have a problem…at least when it comes to entry-level job opportunities. Although it has fewer entry-level employers posting jobs compared with New York and Washington, D.C., the city’s low unemployment rate and cost of living make it an ideal home for young people launching their careers. With 24 of the 57 biggest companies in Texas, Houston is home to big businesses, including Conoco Phillips (COP), Halliburton (HAL), and Continental Airlines (CAL). Energy, aeronautics, and health-care companies round out the opportunities in Houston. With such attractions as the American Cowboy Museum and an active performing arts scene, those working in the city will have plenty to do in their free time, too.
