Kendall County falls within the Alamo Workforce Development Area (WDA), which includes all eight counties within the San Antonio – New Braunfels MSA plus an additional four nearby, predominantly rural, counties.

The largest employment sector for the Alamo WDA is the Education & Health Service sector (25% of entire workforce) followed by Trade, Transportation, & Utilities (17.3%) and Leisure & Hospitality jobs (12.1%). Government jobs comprise 8.5% of the entire workforce. 2020 projections for the Alamo WDA show that the Education & Health Service sector will see the highest level of increase at 33.5% followed by Natural Resources & Mining at a 31.8% increase. Education & Health Services are expected to make up 223,320 of the 1.08 million jobs within the Alamo WDA by 2020. Given the MSA’s rapid growth, it is conceivable that the Education & Health Services sector will continue to be one of the major drivers of the workforce in coming years.
