Labor Market Tools

Tools to make career investigation easy...


  • Texas Skills to Work https://texasskillstowork.com/ was initially built for veterans to help translate their military skills into a civilian job. However, it is applicable for any job seeker. It is similar to My Skills My Future, but more dynamic and easier to use.

  • Texas Reality Check https://texasrealitycheck.com/ is a lifestyle budget calculator targeted toward students, but applicable to the general population as well. It helps the user tie lifestyle choices to costs and then helps identify jobs that support those choices.

  • Texas Labor Analysis is scheduled for launch in December 2017. It will, among other things, provide information on in-demand occupations by region and education level.
