The state of Texas is the second largest in the country -- both in population and square miles. In population it ranks only behind California. In land mass it ranks second to Alaska. When people think of Texas their first thoughts are probably of oil fields and cowboys. While oil and cattle are major industries, business in Texas is as diverse as it's population and landscapes. Texan commerce also includes petrochemical, biomedical, shipping, aerospace, higher education, the list goes on and on. Because it is so large almost any job available in the United States can be found in Texas.
