Could you be one of the millions of unfilled jobs in New Brunswick?
It is fair to say that the economy in New Brunswick has been on a steady decline. In recent years, unemployment rates have skyrocketed, with 9.2% having been the highest point since 2010. This does however seem to be improving as we continue to see some positive signs for those looking for work. The job market in New Brunswick is finally starting to see an end of this slump and employers are hopeful that it’s only a matter of time before things hit rock bottom and start growing again.
Some employers are actually offering incentives to work for them, ranging anywhere from minimum wage rate to paying the employee’s rent if they stay with the company for a certain period of time. The New Brunswick job market is continuing to recover, but when will it be fully recovered?
Some possible reasons that we are still seeing these numbers decline are because there has been a decline in some major industries in the area and other areas have lost many jobs from companies closing down. Some have actually opened up shop in rural areas and smaller cities, but numbers do not show it. Many people who have lost their jobs may not be searching for new ones out of fear that they may never find another one.
Unfortunately, this is a common problem in the job market. The most difficult part of looking for a new job is finding out where to start. Many people have friends and family that work in certain industries, but you don’t know what they do. You can even ask them about their jobs or try to use the Internet, but how do you know whether it’s reliable or not?
