Mid-Size U.S. Employers Almanac From Plunkett Research 2018

HOUSTON, Texas – Plunkett Research, Ltd. recently announced an important market research and competitive analysis report on trends affecting job seekers, Mid-Size U.S. Employers Almanac, 2018 edition.

Job seekers in 2018 should see reasonably strong hiring and rising wages, if the low unemployment rates seen in early 2018 continue, and if confidence remains reasonably high for both consumers and business leaders.  Nonetheless, total growth of the U.S. economy has been disappointing for several years, and this relatively slow growth has a negative effect on hiring and wages. America’s job market is looking better than it has in recent years, and job seekers, including new college grads, should see a reasonable level of job openings.  There will be good opportunities for those who are diligent in seeking top employers in most business sectors.
