New York City is #1 …in Jobs!

By In Uncategorized On November 19, 2010

Today’s New York Times (11/19/2010) has a great article on employment in NYC –  more jobs were added during October 2010 than any time in the last 5 years.  The unemployment rate in NYC is now 9.2 vs 9.6 for the country overall.

And most important these jobs aren’t all on Wall Street – in fact the majority are in advertising and accounting and other professional services industries. 

And this is reflective of our business; many media professionals changed jobs this year in order to improve positions, earn more money or just for a change of scenery.  This is impacting our searches;  many of our candidates have just made a move and are no longer in the market.  And digital candidates are leaving agencies for publishing/clients or start-ups.  It is difficult to find top talent to fill the openings we have.
