EmploymentCrossing Views the Current Job Market as Decent in Spite of Rising Economic Anxieties

July 31, 2008   |  PDF version  PDF version

Pasadena, CA — High gas prices, the weakening housing market, and consistent layoffs have all contributed to rising economic anxieties and mental stress in the US. But though the overall market is showing ominous signs of widespread recession, the employment outlook is not as bad as the media reports suggest, according to EmploymentCrossing (www.employmentcrossing.com). The site, which is also one of the leading job boards in the world, has been able to post 213,000 jobs in a week, a terrific effort, indeed, and is now increasing its own workforce to generate as many job postings as it can in order to relieve the unemployed of their present plight.

According to the Salary Survey report by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), there is good news for recent graduates about the employment situation. It states that the salary for an entry-level graduate has improved by almost 5.3% compared to 2007. Also, management and marketing graduates reported healthier increases in their salaries, with jumps of 8.2% and 4.9%, respectively. Engineering graduates also benefited, with an increase of about 6% over last year’s average salary.

Also, according to a foxnews.com report on the job market, the jobs that have been cut are typically of the more traditional types, mostly laborers, as employers are in constant search of skilled and educated workers who can operate machines efficiently. Thus, compared to the last millennium, more Americans work as financial specialists, designers, lawyers, and software developers. Many companies can afford to invest more in skilled workers than manual laborers, and hence the shift in economy, says the report. Finally, it also says that the average worker’s annual earnings have risen by almost one-sixth compared to his earnings in 1993, which is purely indicative of the progress that has been made in terms of salaries.

''The reason behind the gloomy outlook is the distorted picture that the analysts show, more than anything else,'' says Harrison Barnes, CEO of EmploymentCrossing. ''The projections of the real job market have been distorted. True, the economic situation is bad, but if the job seeker is alert and quick, he/she is sure to get a job. Though some good jobs have disappeared, the consistent trend in the economy is towards higher-paying jobs that use the talent and skills of the educated workforce. EmploymentCrossing scours over 250,000 employer sites and more than 8,000 job boards for high-paying, active job listings, and posts them in the site’s revolutionary job database.''

According to Barnes, the top job types listed on EmploymentCrossing’s website are:
  • Managerial jobs (204,522 jobs)
  • Healthcare jobs (217,076 jobs)
  • Information technology jobs (156,975 jobs)
  • Engineering jobs (116,541 jobs)
  • Accounting jobs (78,891 jobs)
''With a highly trained team of researchers who personally screen each and every job posted on EmploymentCrossing’s portals, EmploymentCrossing seeks out, edits, approves, and tracks an elite collection of jobs on an ongoing basis,'' Barnes says. ''EmploymentCrossing is not for everyone — we are exclusive and private, and only members have access to our job-opening research.''

Unlike other job boards that simply herd masses of job listings without looking back, EmploymentCrossing ensures quality and accuracy to prevent users from wasting time with outdated or filled jobs. There are over 2 million job listings at present on EmploymentCrossing’s site, and the number of jobs is expected to receive a major boost in the coming days.

Testimonial of the Week

What I liked about the service is that it had such a comprehensive collection of jobs! I was using a number of sites previously and this took up so much time, but in joining EmploymentCrossing, I was able to stop going from site to site and was able to find everything I needed on EmploymentCrossing.
