Economic activity continued to increase at a modest to moderate pace, according to the Federal Reserve Board’s latest report on regional economies (known as the “beige book”). Employment growth increased modestly to moderately, but tight labor markets were widespread. Employers had difficulty finding qualified workers across skill levels. Wage growth was modest or moderate, with increases most notable for hard-to-fill professional, technical, and production positions.
Currently, we are experiencing an increase in economic activity and a tight labor market. I have found that when the economy is good, it is challenging to find the outstanding talent or job seekers. I invest countless hours searching for highly qualified candidates with specific technical skill sets. As mentioned above, employers had difficulty finding qualified workers across skill levels.

Fed: Economic Growth Continued; Staffing Demand Mixed
According to The New York Times Friday, December 8, 2017 Evening Briefing, the latest jobs report showed the unemployment rate remained at 4.1 percent, the lowest since 2000, as the nation added to payrolls for the 86th consecutive month. Since companies are in a hiring mode, it is a great time for highly skilled professionals to change employers to advance in their professions. During my twenty years of recruiting, I have developed sources and tools that allow me to contact those professionals. I would appreciate the opportunity to present your analytical and information technology hiring needs for their consideration.

After 7 Years of Job Growth, Room for More, or Danger Ahead?
When I was a Recruiter for Comsys between 1997-1999 in Chicagoland, we processed the H1B Visas of IT professionals with mainframe programming and database skills. At the time, there was a Y2K push. In my opinion, we hired the best and the brightest IT professionals. I was the Recruiter who greeted them when they arrived to the US from India at O’Hare airport. I worked with a relocation company to help them find housing. The IT professionals who obtain H1 B Visas are highly educated and believe in the importance of a college education. In turn, their children will be future leaders with college degrees and move the economy of the United States forward.
