Job Market Update


There are more jobs available in the US than workers to fill them and it does not look like that will change anytime soon. According to the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, job growth is expected to continue the rest of 2018 and throughout 2019. The Survey of Professional Forecasters also lowered their unemployment rate forecasts, suggesting a slightly improved outlook for unemployment. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, certain industries are creating more jobs than others, including professional and business services, manufacturing, health care and social assistance. As the demand for talent continues to outstrip supply, employers are finding it increasingly more difficult to fill open positions, especially small businesses. A recent survey by the National Federation for Independent Business found that 37 percent of small firms had jobs they could not fill – the highest proportion on record since 1974. As the battle for talent continues, companies of all sizes are being forced to find creative ways to find talent, including adding more hours for part-timers, converting contractors to full-time, and hiring workers with fewer skills.
