Better than Expected

February Jobs Report: Source Bureau of Labor Statistics

Posted by Kate Potters, COO at Glenmont Group

The good news is that the jobs growth has momentum. The biggest increase is in the professional services area. We have seen that first hand in the past 6 months. Most encouraging to me is the number of our clients who are beginning to add to headcount, instead of simply replacing people who have left or retired. Something that cannot be measured is the optimism expressed by our clients and candidates in recent months. This confidence will no doubt translate to more hires in the coming months. For a more detailed analysis of the numbers, there’s a posting on the Bureau of Labor Statistics website that is both concise and informative. http://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.nr0.htm
