- Pipefitters/welders. I don't know about other parts of town, but the fabricators along 290 near Cypress have billboards and electronic signs lining the highway advertising that they need workers.
- Foundation repair. A number of the foundation repair companies are tacking on messages that they are hiring during their radio spots. (This is brutal work this time of year.)
- Tree surgeons/timber cutters. The drought has devastated the forests and there are millions of dead/dying mature trees in the Houston metro area. These trees, particularly in neighborhoods, will need to come down before the start of next year's hurricane season. I haven't seen the help wanted ads yet, but they will start appearing soon enough. Very dangerous work that requires unique skills. It's amazing to watch them in action.
- Food service. The restaurant business is in a hiring mode, based upon the Help Wanted signs I've seen.
