Feb 16 CareerBuilder Econ Update


Here’s some high-level information that makes for plenty of talking points for your recruiting team: CareerBuilder’s January 2016 Economic Update. 


In 4 slides, this report covers everything from temporary penetration rate, unemployment rate, wages and projections. Matt Dodaro, the report’s author, summarized the main points for us here:

“from a job creation standpoint, January added 151,000 jobs while November and December were actually revised down 2,000 jobs than previously reported. Additionally, it took an extra month than the Economists’ projections, but we dipped below 5.0% unemployment for the first time since the recession.”
