If you’re familiar with the city of Dallas, then you should most certainly be familiar with the neighboring city, Fort Worth. Fort Worth is a beautiful city that has a history dating back to its time as a trading post back in the late 19th century. In the years following, it became a popular place for pioneers, travelers, and cowboys to rest and recharge after battling the challenges of traversing the Chisholm Trail. Today, Fort Worth is a bustling city known for its Texas history and a lively cultural identity brought to life by a number of beautiful museums. Fort Worth is a fantastic city to work and live in no matter where you’re at in your life.
Fort Worth is very much an industrial city that has a number of large corporations to rely on for its economy. For example, American Airlines, BNSF Railway, Williamson-Dickie Manufacturing Company, and others are all some of the largest industrial employers in the city. From there, the economy becomes more diverse and companies like Alcon, Chinos Holdings, Cash America International, and FTS International all provide stable employment opportunities for young professionals and seasoned executives alike. Not to mention, Fort Worth’s economy closely overlaps with its neighbor, the city of Dallas.
