Labor Day is a great holiday for career coaches. The press, looking for interesting article angles, profile workers, job trends and all things labor-related. Nothing better than enjoying a cup of coffee with an interesting array of career-related articles on hand.
This Labor Day (oh, how I naturally want to spell it “labour”) I’ve been reflecting on the job market. According to national labor statistics, this is the best the job market has been since 2000. I think it’s better too, but I’ve been seeing this shift for the past 18 months or so.
What I’ve noticed with my own clients are multiple job offers, more and more companies stepping up their recruiting efforts, companies having a harder time finding experienced recruiters for their team, and other signs that the job market is looking brighter.
Don’t wait for the “perfect” time to find a new job. Now is as good a time as any. Take the improved job climate as a sign of encouragement… today’s the perfect day.
