US Unemployment Is At a 6 Year Low

The Institute for Supply Management (ISM) reported this month that employment in US manufacturing grew in October for the 16th consecutive month, registering 55.5 percent, which is an increase of 0.9 percent above the September reading of 54.6 percent.  Overall, US job growth increased with US employers adding 214,000 new jobs in October and pushing the unemployment to a six-year low of 5.8.  While there has been some uncertainties overseas, the US economy still seems to be moving in a positive direction.  This is all pointing to a stronger demand for technical and management talent as we head into the start of the New Year.
