Quarterly Newsletter for Accounting & Finance Professionals from Diane Delgado LeMaire @ CFS


 My outlook for 2019 remains “cautiously” optimistic. Houston hiring cooled down a bit in the summer, and that is not unusual. Historically the Fall has always been my busiest time of year. Currently, even though the supply of top talent remains low hiring demand seems rather flat. I am still waiting for the fall hiring spike to occur.

Let’s walk through some statistics that could explain why:

  • Three engines drive Houston’s growth: Oil & Gas, Foreign Trade and the U.S. Economy
  • The world’s largest economies in order are: U.S., China, Japan & Germany (equals around 50%)
  • Three hundred thirty thousand local jobs are tied to exports. Houston led the nation in exports (120B). Exports are slipping though.
  • The US generated 130,000 jobs in August. It averaged 158,000 the rest of the year and over 200,000 in 2018.
  •  U.S. GDP growth was at 2.0 in Q2. That is good, but not great!
  • The oil & gas industry lost over 93,000 jobs during the fracking bust and less than half the jobs have been recovered.

Local Statistics:

  • National Unemployment Rate: 4.0 (last year 4.1)
  • Houston Unemployment Rate: 4.0 (last year 4.5)
  • Labor Participation Rate: 63.2% – All-time high January 2000: 67.30%
  • Manufacturing Index: 51.6
  • Oil Rig Count: 904 (last year 1,048) – All-time high around 1900 in 2012!
  • Price of Oil: 55.91
