|In November 2016, Money Magazine ran an article with the following headline:
“Why 2017 Is Going to Be the Best Job Market in Years”
Maybe they should revisit that. In fact, 2017 is turning out to be quite the opposite:
- 2017 is tracking to create the fewest jobs since 2010.
- We have the highest number of job openings in history – jobs that employers want to fill but won’t.
- Last month saw the first uptick in 18 months in the layoffs rate.
- Mergers and acquisitions are down significantly from last year: a true indication of CEOs’ lack of confidence.
But here’s the good news:
More than 5.8 million hires were made last month, not a record, but good numbers.
So what’s the story?
We simply don’t know which way the market will turn, but we do know it will be uncertain. And in times of uncertainty, the only thing of which we can be certain is ourselves.
