Attention Job Seekers! It is a great time to be looking for employment! 2018 marks the first time on record (since 2000) that the number of available jobs in the U.S. surpassed the number of those unemployed.
In April, job openings were at 6.7 million while the number of those unemployed was 6.6 million. With such a high number of job openings compared to those seeking work, job seekers have the advantage. These numbers may not reflect the percentage of the population that chooses to remain unemployed, however, the numbers reflect a job seekers market.
