Not Rocket Science

There are 5,000,000 jobs that are going unfilled because the skills just aren’t there.  5,000 jobs is a significant number.  5,000,000 is a significant impact.  We still have a ton of “underemployed” in America.

Economic Outlook

Economists are lowering their expectations going forward because of unexpected gridlock.  Gridlock is the norm in Washington but with a Republican White House and Congress there was some hope that a lot would get done.  But the gridlock remains.  Too many competing agendas.

Where this leaves us is probably stuck in this slow, lower than 2%, growth.  That’s better than a recession, but if you are waiting for the economy to give an extra boost to business you are probably going to be…

Recruitment fails and no feedback – does it have to be the daily life for job seekers?

The labor market lately is full of great job offers and lack of unemployed professionals. That makes the better qualified workers to be more fussy about the job offers and perks.

Job stability is not what it used to be.  It seems like it was a century ago when job stability was something that employees counted on from a single employer for an entire career.  That’s actually close to accurate.
