Bustling jobs market in America leaves some people behind.
Bustling jobs market in America……….. Friday’s jobs report provided some much-needed relief for those worried that the U.S. economy was in a slow walk toward recession. Details are more complicated for those labor market, employers and job seekers. The country faced a tight labor market despite the addition 196,000 nonfarm jobs in March.
Both ways have been cut for workers who have skills but can’t seem to find the right jobs to fit their qualifications. Over the past year ‘The Dallas-Forth-Worth-Arlington region ‘rose by 100,000 or 3 percent making it one of the most bustling markets in the country. Summers have started applying in other states and other cities by moving and working outside of Dallas.
There are other signs that the market is changing. Glass door, a site that helps connect workers with jobs and provides information and working conditions and salaries, has seen a significant drop-off in job postings this year. Digging into sectors behind it, it’s fairly broad based. The economy is flashing a yellow light but not a red light. Middle-market companies, for instance, are focusing on retaining current employees with an emphasis on training them to do the kinds of jobs that are in demand.
The survey found 46 percent of respondents concerned with attracting and retaining employees. Companies including SunTrust in markets like summers’ Dallas are coming up with ways to retain workers and are not necessarily bringing in new hires as technology continues to grow and the demand for more sophisticated skills increases.
