For the few metropolitan areas becoming more specialized in design jobs, there are a few surprises at the top of the list. Some have merely performed a little better than the nation and others are seeing substantial upticks after the downturn.
For the 10 metros poised to grow the quickest through 2018, we explored our data with CareerBuilder to identify the fastest-growing occupations inside the temp sector. These numbers come from Analyst, EMSI’s labor market research tool.
At the same time as manufacturing’s return in Grand Rapids (a trend that’s played out to a smaller degree across the United States), temporary employment has seen a full-blown revival. Is this a coincidence? Not likely.
Looking at EMSI’s recently released 2013.3 dataset, it quickly became evident that fast-food occupations aren’t the only low-wage fields growing in the five boroughs of New York City.
Even with the almost-insatiable demand for information technology (IT) workers, historic wages and other data don’t indicate a dramatic shortage. We explore using the freshest labor market data available.
Calculated Risk has a fresh look at the boom and bust of real estate in California, showing the precipitous decline in the number of real estate sales agent licensees. In this post, we look at employment data for the U.S. and California to see how labor market data stacks up to the number of licensees.
To give you an idea of what Analyst for Canada can do, we thought we would start by getting a broad picture of Canada’s workforce in 2012. We’re going to use Analyst to find out what the best-paying, fastest-growing jobs in Canada were in 2012, and where they’re growing the fastest.
Based on our just-finalized data release, the six occupations with the highest growth rate from 2011-2012 (and seven of the top 10) are riding the fossil-fuel wave. We explore each in detail.
We explore the growth of the management consulting field, especially among those who work on the side as consultants, and where it’s grown the most (hint: Washington, D.C. and state capitals with government-heavy workforces).
Which metros are becoming more competitive (that is, gaining a larger share of total job creation) and which are losing their share of the jobs being created. We take a look using shift-share analysis.
