As we move into spring (and hopefully warmer weather), it looks like the job market is heating up as well! According to our March Employment Index, last month we experienced a 29% year over year uptick in all job orders from clients with growth in both full-time opportunities and temporary/contract roles. While our Employment Index comes on the heels of a disappointing March Jobs Report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, job seekers shouldn’t worry that the economy is beginning to slow down just yet. For example, our internal data indicates that the number of job orders we have received from clients has been steadily climbing since January with each month experiencing more growth than the last, while the unemployment rate has held steady at 5.5% – a 7-year low.
