Round Rock Employment Options for Relocating Home Buyers

September 23, 2017 12:04 pm

People who decide to relocate to the Austin area often look at new homes in Round Rock TX to buy because of the city’s affordability, convenient location, excellent schools, family-friendly amenities, and numerous employment opportunities.

Round Rock has a diverse economy that focuses on four target sectors: innovative manufacturing, life sciences and healthcare, professional and financial services, and technology and computing. The city’s chamber of commerce is committed to maintaining this diversity as the community continually evolves.

TECO Westinghouse, a world leader in the manufacturing of electric motors and generators, is headquartered in Round Rock. The company serves a variety of industries, including petrochemical, electric utility, paper, water / wastewater treatment, air conditioning, marine, mining and metals. It’s currently working with Clemson University to develop a prototype of a variable speed drive as part of a federal government program to boost energy efficiency, and double U.S. energy productivity by 2030.

Visitors to the TECO Westinghouse campus are greeted by the company’s mascots: two Longhorn cattle who have resided there since the 1980’s. The company’s campus also makes it easy for its employees to stay in shape, and have fun at the same time, since it features tennis courts, a volleyball and basketball court, and a full-size softball field.

Job seekers can also seek employment opportunities with the highly-rated Round Rock ISD. The school district serves about 45,000 students in five high schools, ten middle schools, 32 elementary schools and two alternative learning centers. The number of students attending Round Rock schools has increased by nearly 21 percent during the past five years, and the annual growth rate of 3.5 percent is expected to continue.

Round Rock campuses are designed according to a “neighborhood school” concept, which allows the district to put smaller than normal schools into community neighborhoods. That typically translates into more schools, which means more job opportunities in the areas of education, maintenance, transportation and administration.

The Villas at University Park is an excellent community to consider for those looking at new homes in Round Rock TX to buy.

Buyers can choose among Buffington’s most popular floor plans, such as the 3 bedroom, 2-1/2 bath Turnberry, which offers 1,973 square feet of living space under two stories, a spacious master’s retreat with large walk-in closet, gourmet kitchen, and options such as a deck with covered porch.
