Employment Situation – Good News and Bad News

Employment Situation Good News and Bad NewsLet's talk about the employment climate right now.         

As you may know, the unemployment rate is at an 11-year low.                 

This means, if you’re looking for a job, the competition will be a lot less than it was than a year or two ago so you have a better shot at landing the job you applied for. It also means that managers are under more pressure to offer a better salary and employment terms. This is great news for job seekers.                         


We are also at a time where long term job security is lower and even a rare occurrence for a lot of people. A vast majority only stay at their job for a couple of years before having to go apply for a new job again.

What this means, no matter how secure you feel you are at your job, you can’t be complacent and let your job search skills get rusty. Because you never know when you might need them again. It would be a lot easier to get another job if you are always on top of your game when it comes to job searching and interviews.

This is why even if you have a job right now, it’s valuable that you spend time to keep yourself updated with the latest tips and strategies when it comes to the job search game.

Because today, there’s only one kind of job security:

When you know, in your heart, that you have the ability to find jobs that are perfect for your skills and experience, put yourself in the running for them, and ace any job interview. This ability is a safety net nobody can take away.                                      

This is a strategy that you should apply if you don’t want to ever feel the kind of stress you felt when you didn’t have a job because you know you can always get another job.

Never forget that.
