Texas ended 2014 with 457,900 new jobs for the year and tacked on the fifth consecutive month of record-breaking annual job growth.

The professional and business services industry lead December’s job growth, adding 14,800 positions. Education and health services grew by 6,800 positions and construction expanded by 5,100 jobs.

“The state’s steady job growth is great news for Texas workers,” said Ronnie Congleton, TWC commissioner representing labor. “We continue to work with our local Workforce Solutions partners to strive for an environment where there is a good-paying job for every Texan who wants one.”

"We had a very positive experience. Joe Milburn was nice and pleasant to talk to. Was always available either by phone or by email and responded quickly to all my inquiries. Mariam was professional but compassionate to my unique circumstances. Ramon was kind and patient with my husband's special needs. Even the young lady at the front desk was easy to speak with while I waited. ( Sorry, I didn't get her name. ) From beginning to end the process was fast and efficient. "
