Kelly Services released a report on March 26 indicating positive news on the labor front. “The outlook for college graduates shows demand for health care, information technology, and engineering degrees since those sectors have continuing growth,” the report said. There is still a shortage of qualified engineers, which bodes well for degreed job seekers, according to the report.
In its recent Global Workforce Survey, Kelly Services found that online job boards have become the primary way job seekers look for work. It also found that self-employment is growing in popularity because it helps job seekers gain “greater control” over their career path and may improve work-life balance.
