Where to Find Jobs in the Rio Grande
If you are thinking of moving here and are looking for
jobs in the Rio Grande Valley, you should first look at the
cost of living. Dont expect to be paid what you make
somewhere else. However, there is great news. According to
www.salary.com, if you make $50,000 in New York City, you
should expect an income of $35,900 in McAllen, Texas.
However, the cost of living in McAllen is 68% less than it
is in New York. This would leave you with an extra $20,000
in disposable income per year.

If you are a highly trained professional I would check
the following areas:
Healthcare This is by
far the biggest arena. There are quite a few large hospitals
in the area and every time I drive through town I see more
medical buildings going up. A few of the major hospitals are
the Rio Grande Valley Regional Hospital, McAllen Heart
Hospital, McAllen Medical Center, Edinburg Childrens
Hospital, Knapp Medical Center in Weslaco, and Valley
Baptist in Harlingen and Brownsville.
Colleges The main
colleges are UTB in Brownsville, Pan American in Edinburg,
STCC in McAllen and TSTC in Harlingen. Recently, there have
been new smaller colleges opening up around the valley. Most
have a fast tracked for medical certifications.
If you are someone who
does not have a college degree, then let me suggest trying a
call center. The wages may start off low. However, if you
can show up to work every day and be aggressive towards
advancement, you should be able to double your starting pay
in a short amount of time. Some of the major call centers in
the Rio Grande Valley are T-Mobile in Mission and
Brownsville, Convergys in Pharr and Brownsville, United
Health in Harlingen, and Time Warner Cable in Harlingen as
well. The list of total call centers in the valley is
becoming quite lengthy. You can access the location and
numbers for these call centers here.
Another great company
to try and start with would be H.E.B. They are the most
successful grocery store in the RGV.
