Do you need a well-paying job and feel willing to travel to another state in order to secure it? Even if you are a worker ages 50 and older? It’s possible and it’s all taking place in Houston, Texas.

We know that Texas was relatively unaffected by the Great Recession of 2008 – 2010, especially in its major cities. All these cities are good places for workers of any age to find employment, including our senior citizens.

Many Seniors need to work past “retirement”, the definition of which is changing.

Did you know that under the Reagan Administration, the Social Security Retirement Age for full benefits was scheduled to increase to age 75?

That’s right! Younger Baby Boomers today may not retire until age 66 already, and some of them have received letters stating that they should not retire until age 70.

Regardless, many of our nation’s older workers want and need to work past age 62. Houston is the best city in the State of Texas to do so, because of the long list of Senior Resources available and the large number of jobs open. Texas is much more than big hats, longhorn steers, and horses.

And why not work, unless you can schedule a global tour to last about five years? I met a woman long ago who was in her 70s and working in a large department store in Downtown Dayton, Ohio. Sure, her hair was white, but her demeanor was that of a joyous young woman. I want to be like that!

Here is a snapshot of jobs most often listed in Houston, where we have over 70,000 openings in Early July 2015:

  • Healthcare and Healthcare Support offer over 49,000 openings in Greater Houston- Travel health professionals are dramatically in demand and these folks earn more than average and benefit from perks like mortgage payments!
  • Engineers are needed to the tune of 15,000 openings in various field from It to Healthcare to Oil & Gas. More thousands of technician’s jobs are attached to these engineers, especially in the Aerospace Industry.
  • Officer Support, Customer Service, and Call Center jobs number over 14,000. remember Dame Judy Dench’s character in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel – she became a call center consultant.
  • Business and Finance lists over 11,000 openings for auditors, accountants, and analysts.

Whatever your plans for the future and your retirement, if you need to work, you might want to get your self to Houston!

The Aerospace Industry is beginning an upsurge during QT2 2015 that includes plans for new drone-related businesses and jobs.

The Ohio Space Corridor through Cincinnati – Dayton – Columbus  already brings in $8 billion to Ohio every year and expects to increase this by 3,000 jobs and millions of new revenue dollars. Meanwhile, the national forecast is for 100,000 new jobs and $90 billion of business.

Drones have gone into the private sector, too, for commercial and non-profit uses.

The FAA is writing rules for flying drones that weigh under 55 pounds, specifically for civilian airspace. The Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International believes that adding drones into the civilian arena can offer thousands of jobs by 2025 in Ohio and tens of thousands to the USA.

In 2013, American companies advertise approximately 1,000 anti-corruption related positions across the country;but, the number of openings advertised rose to over 1,400 positions in Spring 2015.

This is a rapidly expanding sector in the area of Criminology and should continue to produce new jobs in the next several years. Competitions between nations is rising as USA, Russia, China and other go after property tights on Mars, the Moon, and the Asteroid Belt.

In Medicine, anti-corruption work is important to control fraud in personal injury, Workers Compensation, SSI/SSDI, Medicare, Medicaid, drugs, transplant and 3D-Printer organs marketing, and many others.

Highest Demand Anti-Corruption Jobs Advertised Include:

  • Chief Compliance Officer
  • Senior Audit Leader
  • Litigation/Forensic Accountant
  • Audit Manager
  • Cyber Crime and Breach Response
  • Risk & Compliance Specialist
  • Anti-Money Laundering Analyst
  • Insurance Investigator
  • Claims Analyst

Texas is steadily maintaining a sizable pool of job advertisements, with help from the Aerospace and Healthcare Industries, along with Oil & Gas. That’s despite the blocking of the last leg of the Keystone XL Pipeline. Trucks are carrying the oil and tar sands down from Canada and that has led to an increase in trucking jobs to just about 1,000,000 truck drivers needed in America. That is good news! These are permanent jobs, whereas the Pipeline jobs created would have lasted only a matter of several months, except for a handful of supervisors and engineers.

Texas is good news for business and workers also, because there is no state income tax, but plenty of business incentives offered. On top of that is the network available for people ages 55 and older to use free-of-charge for finding jobs, housing, and other opportunities.

It may be hot in parts of Texas, but the job opportunities are hotter.

After studying labor trends and markets for about two decades, I see some business magazine estimates of workforce needs and think that I would separate Education from Civic jobs and Creative from Service careers to create a Top Seven Industries for the future.

TOP SEVEN GROWING INDUSTRIES

  1. Science and Technology – Includes large numbers of Engineering and Technician positions, especially in Bioengineering, Communications, Energy and Fuel, Growing New Organs, Prosthetics, Pharmaceuticals, Anti-Aging Treatments, Aerospace Exploration and Mining, Aerospace Travel and Colonization, and others.
  2. Healthcare – Includes IT, Bioengineering, many Technician positions, and Aerospace Medicine.
  3. Service,
  4. Civic,
  5. Business
  6. Finance, and
  7. Creative.

Out new astronauts are sportspeople, combat pilots, Antarctic explorers, and scuba divers, engineers and doctors, and this includes the women and the men. Thanks to them and the ongoing space programs, both public and private, companies like Lockheed-Martin have listings for 10,000 jobs.

Enough Americans at all income levels are ready to back privatized and NASA projects to near-Earth asteroids and Mars.

Our next steps with NASA and the private companies that make up NASA’s Commercial Crew will be the Asteroid Belt beyond Mars and the moons of Jupiter.

Sir Arthur C. Clarke felt that at least one of Jupiter’s moon would be inhabitable and several space tourist companies would like to build hotels on these moons or floating nearby. I wish we could live long enough to see all this.

The NASA Astronaut Class of 2013 will be participating in the first two missions: asteroid landing and Mission to Mars.

New astronaut classes will be selected in the future, have no doubt.

Brent Spiner and Robert Picardo are to Planetary Resources what Nichelle Nichols (Lt. Uhura) has been to the NASA recruitment program since the 1970s.

Spiner and Picardo will help the Planetary Resources to institute a global initiative to allow teachers and students in classrooms, as well as the general public, to access their own and NASA’s volunteered resources for use in studying actual celestial bodies. Now you can visit space without leaving the ground!

Planetary Resources opened a Kickstarter initiative to raise $1,000,000 for telescopes for use by students, teachers and the public and they received half a million dollars in their first 24 hours! people are excited about this project. And soon, the American public will have access to these telescopes and data gathered from them. Author Sir Arthur C. Clarke would be thrilled that his own concept of the communications satellite has progressed to such a point.

APPI.org: Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition DSM-5™ 978-0-89042-554-1.

While many professionals are aghast at the changes in DSM-V, the diagnostic bible of both APAs, the new manual makes for good discussions. It may lead to fistfights. More news forthcoming as I sift through more changes than I initially expected.

Whatever else may happen as a result of the DSM-V  release during the May 2013 annual APA Convention in San Francisco with Keynote Speaker, President William Jefferson Clinton, the Healthcare Industry will expand to handle the increased number of disorders threatening to bloom in US society. In addition to this, with a second Space Mining Company (besides Google’s, 2010) opening in January 2013, Space Medicine practitioners and technicians will reach high demand by 2015.

What a way to have more jobs – by having more sick people! — For example, everyday forgetfulness linked to a packed schedule or other daily stressors can now be disagnosed as a solid disorder and that might qualify it for SSDI or SSI.

Life in America just became more interesting.

Whiskey Row is primarily the 100 block of Montezuma Street in Downtown Prescott, Arizona across from Courthouse Square. It sounds like a small place, but it is large – a long block of businesses and services that includes many restaurant and taverns as well as historic sites.  This city is good for working and visiting on vacation, but is advertised also as one of the Best Places To Retire In America, because it has so much for people of all ages to do. It offers affordable housing and even retirement-appropriate jobs if Seniors want to work.

The city is growing economically, with large employers like

  1. Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
  2. Lockheed Martin – Aerospace and Defense
  3. Fann Contracting – Highway and Heavy Construction
  4. Cobham Aerospace
  5. Fortner – Aerospace Manufacturing

The Whiskey Row downtown district maintains interesting dining places, coffee shops, historic hotels, 10 saloons in a row, boutiques, gift shops, art galleries, and several Native American shops that sell handcrafted clothing and accessories. There is even a Harley Davidson store, but the area is host to music festival, art gatherings, and many more cultural events as well.  “The Row” is home to many Downtown events all year —
