 Texas Labor Market Review, a monthly newsletter of the Labor Market Information Department of the Texas Workforce Commission, provides current information and statistics about the Texas economy generally, and the Texas labor force specifically. Each issue contains a brief overview of the Texas economy, an in-depth feature article, and highlights of employment figures important to the Texas economy. The TLMR is a PDF publication.

LMCI's Economic Profiles are designed to give a brief fact filled one-page snapshot of an area economy. The economic profiles cover Texas as a whole and by industry, the Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSA), and the Workforce Development Areas (WDA). Each profile is updated monthly, and is displayed as an Acrobat PDF file for easy downloading.

Transitions Abroad is a bimonthly magazine of practical information for independent-minded travelers who want to experience the thrills and lifelong rewards of immersion abroad. Each issue covers the alternatives to mass tourism: learning, living, working, studying and volunteering abroad, as well as vacationing with the people of the host country. Copies can be viewed in the Career Services office (room 133, UW).

Employer Tips for Success 

Candidates should remember to steer clear of hypothetical answers and should mold their answer around real life professional or scholarly examples from their past. Employers want to know your track record more so than how you hope or think you would respond in a situation.

 

Also, be sure to ask questions. Ask about safety programs or how the position came to be open, and share what it is that you already know about the company. Let your questions show that you have done your homework about the company and that you are being selective about the position you are considering. If you want the position, tell them and let them know why. Few candidates think to do this but it goes a long way. Employers are half concerned with whether or not you are what they are looking for, and equally concerned with whether or not the company fits what the candidate is looking for.
