Waco has been growing exponentially in the last two years, in part, due to the Fixer-Upper phenomena. But, there are other reasons people are arriving daily to the charming Texas town (ok, maybe also in part due to the success of the show making Magnolia Market a draw for downtown tourism).
Business developers, investors, healthcare providers, and academics are all arriving in Waco!
Maybe you, too, would like to make the move?
My family of five arrived here in September of 2016 from Wisconsin. While I grew up in Texas, Waco would be new for us. We had much to consider: schools, housing, job market, and pre-school childcare.
Although this blog post is in no way inclusive, here are a few things I learned, and some resources:
Baylor University is a private Christian university with more than 16,000 students.
Whether you’re a researcher, lecturer, director, or technical guru, Baylor lists open positions online.
Perhaps the most trending destination spot in the state, the family is growing at Magnolia. The proximity to delicious cupcakes is a huge selling point.
Providence is part of the largest nonprofit health system in the nation. The campus in Waco includes a 237-bed acute-care hospital.
There are a ton of up-and-coming small businesses and start-ups that would love your talent! In addition to following Waco Moms Blog, check out Waco Chamber for other major employers and business directory.
