Future Plan for Tulsa Job Market

What would you say about taking a position that will pay at least $50,000 a year? Tulsa's Future program has the goal of doing just that and doing it on a large scale. The goal is to create 10,000 new primary jobs in the city that offer a pay rate of at least $50,000 a year. More so, the creation of those initial positions will also create another 16,000 additional jobs for the city. The goal is to create those 10,000 additional jobs within a five-year period that will run from 2011 through 2015. What is the verdict?

For those who are looking for ways to get a new just, this information likely sounds good. The plan is in place and it seems to be working. More than 4000 of the 8200 jobs that were created or otherwise announced in 2011 in the area have an annual income above that $50,000 mark. That's a good sign for just one year into the plan, some experts say.

There is reason to be hopeful. In fact, the city is ranked as one of the most likely places for people to find work when you are looking on a national level. It tied for fifth in the nation as one of the country’s' best employment outlook for the first quarter of 2012. It ranked as one of the top ten best places to find a job by FiscalTimes as well.

This information remains positive but what about you. Are you finding the Tulsa job you are looking for or are you still struggling to find a position that pays enough?
