Job Outlook 2016 - Part 2


As we stated last week, this month's newsletter contained many more new candidates than normal and is being sent in 2 parts. Good luck to all of you this year and thanks for your support.


Continued... All indications are that 2016 will be a good year for job seekers.


Kiplinger's research shows payrolls to expand further this year by 190,000 jobs per month on average dropping the jobless rate to 4.6% by year end. The hiring outlook for college graduates continues to improve as employers plan to hire 11 percent more new college graduates from the Class of 2016 for their U.S. operations than they did from the Class of 2015, according to results of NACE's Job Outlook 2016 survey. Employers that expect to maintain their hiring numbers now represent the largest group of respondents since the 2010-11 recruiting year.


What does this mean for you? With 1 in 5 employers committed to hiring and only 8% of employers labeled unsure or reducing their labor force, good candidates are going to be in demand. And as the year goes on they will become more expensive. Colleges and universities cannot deliver the experienced people you need. It also means you don't waste time placing ads that only deliver the best of the worst. You need to find the happily employed. These are the people that can help your bottom line.  We know where they are.


No one specializes in the packaging industry like Swift Personnel Solutions.  With over 31,000 packaging professionals in our database you know this is our only specialty.  We know the difference between a senior structural engineer and a gluer operator.  And we know what the employment market is doing.  Call us today and get those people you need before we place them with your competition and they get your profits.
