Employers are posting more jobs in the Austin metro area than they have in at least six years… But many are having a hard time filling those spots.

The Chamber also points to even more jobs coming to the area, soon, saying 2,800 jobs were announced in November, and 23,000 announced in all of 2021. That includes Samsung Austin Semiconductor and Iron Ox.
