Great news today, Unemployment rate fell to 3.9%
But what does this really mean? During the month of July 2018, the U.S. added 157,000 jobs. For all intensive purposes we are at near or “full” employment…meaning every American that is able or willing to get a job has one.
Specifically, jobs were added in the following sectors: business 51,000 jobs, manufacturing 37,000 jobs, and health care 34,000 jobs. But what does this mean to you?
We are now at the point in our economy where we go from the “what” of a job to the “why” and “how” of the job. Are you fulfilled? Do you want a raise? Are you in the right job, or even career?
In recent months, a great deal of the individuals that I’ve had the privilege to work with are choosing to be in transition. That’s right, choosing to look beyond their connect job for the next step in their career. How about you?
While I would fall short of saying everyone should be looking for a different job, I would say that it is something we should be evaluating. Knowing that you should stay or look for your next opportunity is an important element to always know.
