How is the labor market changing? The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has released its latest 10-year employment projections through 2028, a few months earlier than usual. This information is especially helpful to job seekers, students, and anyone making career and education plans.

You can learn about in-demand occupations and other trends by listening to the recorded Webinar on WorkforceGPS.

The Webinar topics include the following:
•    Occupations projected to grow fastest
•    Occupations projected to decline
•    Occupations adding most new jobs
•    Large, low-skilled occupations have the most openings
•    Occupations that require more education pay more
•    High school occupations by training level
•    Occupations needing more education for entry are projected to grow faster

It’s easy for job seekers to lose steam in a job hunt. They may start out positive and energized, but as the days go on without a positive employer response, their drive and attitude may lag, according to Career Action Resources, LLC. Share these tips to help them regain momentum:

  • Get active. Lack of physical activity can make a person lethargic. Suggest that your job hunters get exercise throughout the day. 
  • Make a schedule. Open-ended hours can make job seekers feel lost. Recommend that they create a daily schedule that includes job searching as their top activity. Include tasks such as calling contacts, following up on job leads, researching employers, and participating in a job search workshop and job club. 
  • Avoid isolation. People lose important connections when they lose a job. Plus, it’s easy to feel lonely when job searching without much human interaction. So they should consider making phone calls instead of always emailing contacts, attending business events, joining job search workshops, and volunteering.

Looking for more ways to educate and motivate job seekers on effective job hunting? Consider using Your Employment Search (YES), a quick, self-guiding job hunt tool.
