The LEAP Report® - November Edition

Posted on November 13, 2017

BY LEAPROS™ The LEAP Report®

Hello Friends,
 
Thank you for reviewing our monthly employment report designed for employers and professionals.  This complimentary resource provides the latest information about the national and local job market, along with hiring and job search resources for the disciplines we serve. If you would like to be added or removed from our monthly mailing list, please let us know. 

 
Job Market Update


The US economy is expected to continue performing well in the fourth quarter and pick up momentum going into 2018.  The growth is being driven by strong consumer and business spending, increases in foreign trading, and a manufacturing resurgence.  According to the Institute for Supply Management, US factories are expanding at the fastest pace in 13 years, leading to a sustained rebound that will prop up the economy after a protracted period of weakness.  Filings for unemployment benefits recently plunged to the lowest level since 1973, and the national unemployment rate is at the lowest level since 2001.  In Southern California, the job market has remained strong, with continued demand for professionals with specialized skill sets.  At F.A.I.T.H. Resources, we experienced an uptick in demand for executives and professionals in the third quarter, and have been very busy with requests for contractors to assist with special projects and staff augmentation.  We expect the demand for contingent labor to remain strong through the remainder of Q4 as companies hire more contractors to assist with year-end projects and as a stopgap measure until full-time professionals are hired.
