The Top Growing Jobs in Wichita Falls

 Jobs are on the rise as the unemployment rate drops to 4.75% in Wichita Falls.

We spoke with Workforce Solutions of North Texas to find out what the top growing jobs are in Wichita Falls.

“One of the fastest growing jobs in Wichita Falls and the surrounding area are in-home health care professionals,” said Crystal Ojeda, Job Developer at Workforce Solutions of North Texas.

Ojeda said since people are living longer, many are choosing to cater to those who are in need. Another growing sector is the service industry.

“With all the different options we have, people are more willing to eat out,” said Ojeda. “Sales jobs are also huge in Wichita Falls. We've got a lot of places to shop and a lot of places to eat.”

Another sector hitting a growth spurt would be customer service and Ojeda informed us that AT&T is adding 65 new jobs to the area.

“Be proactive and stay ahead of the game,” said Ojeda. “Looking for a job is a full time job and then some.”

Ojeda believes that fitting into your company’s culture is most important if you want to thrive within the work place.

If you're the one looking for a new job, the Red, White and You Statewide Fair is coming to Wichita Falls November 13th


Ojeda understands that now is the time to look for a new job. So what are you waiting for?
