Better than anticipated results were reported on Friday regarding the US job market. According to a recent Houston Chronicle article, “Employers added 223,000 jobs last month, more than economists expected and a pickup from April’s hiring rate of 159,000.” Today, the US Department of Labor released more data. “Never before have we had an economy where the number of open jobs exceeds the number of job seekers,” said US Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta. With the lowest unemployment rate in over 18 years and the rise in new opportunities, the competition among employers for qualified candidates is strong. Are you attracting and hiring top talent?
