Despite a modest uptick in the total number of jobs added this month, the overall economic outlook continues to be uncertain for the region as job postings and other key metrics continue to trend downwards. To learn more about these trends and how they might impact your community please read this month’s edition of the DFW Labor Market Update.

With a booming economy and low cost of living, the DFW area is attracting tech companies and startups alike, leading to a surge in tech jobs. Dallas-Fort Worth ranked second in the nation for the largest number of technology jobs added in 2022, with a total of 21,800 jobs added. The region is poised for continued growth in the tech sector in the coming years.

A project in Celina was recently announced that would bring a massive +$100 million mixed-used development to the City. The Crossing at Moore Farm, a 77-acre property featuring a 110,000-square-foot luxury fitness center, retail, and 750 residential units, is expected to begin site work in April of 2023.
