February 3rd, 2017
We are still seeing a lot of new job orders (job requisitions) from new and old clients. Employment is still strong. One of my clients gave me an assignment recently due to lines being closed in Mexico and moved back home. A nonpolitical move, I was told, but due to the lack of cost savings they had expected. So, it seems to have naturally worked its self out.
Seeing an increase in jobs in all sectors. From Automotive to Food.
Lines are still long at local resturants on the weekends which is a poor man’s barometer on how strong consumer confidence is holding.
The fed held off raising the interest rates this week which keeps investors from going nuts and selling off.
All in all, seeing a strong first quarter emerge in employment. Fingers crossed this continues.
