It’s another holiday weekend – the end of summer. On Monday we’ll celebrate labor, honoring the contributions the workingman has made to America. If you are unemployed, you may feel left out of this party. But fear not, the right job is coming toward you as we speak. The economy is growing. The pandemic is waning (ever so slowly) and there are help-wanted signs everywhere. If you need a job, you can find one.
It’s not just fast food and warehouse jobs that are open. The total “Quit Rate” in June (the last month that data is available) was almost 3.9 million people which equates to 2.7% of the workforce. That is almost a full percentage point over June of last year. Without any facts to back me up I going to assume that the vast majority of those people quit because they found a new and better job. I’m also going to assume that companies then sought to fill virtually every one of those jobs.
There is a lot happening in this job market. If you want to be a part of it, and be able to rightfully celebrate Labor Day, jump into the pool. Start networking. Work on a killer resume and elevator speech. Apply for jobs, and I bet you can be working in a manner of weeks.
